Report: Hanford Workers Carried Guns Onto Nuclear Reservation, Poached Elk


Two workers at Washington's Hanford Nuclear Reservation are reportedly still employed at that facility, even after admitting to bringing guns onto the nuclear site and poaching elk on Hanford property.

This morning's Tri-City Herald reports that state investigators found that Daniel Charboneau and Brock Miller, both Hanford employees, came up the Columbia River by boat, where signs are posted along the river not to trespass on Hanford land. Investigators discovered that the men killed three elk, two on restricted Hanford land and a third along the Columbia River, an area also closed to the public.

But the Herald reports both men had their jail sentences suspended after agreeing to pay fines. Additionally, the Herald reports that both Hanford workers continue to be employed at the nuclear reservation.
