Tribar CEO’s home vandalized

The home of the CEO of the company responsible for a toxic chemical discharge of into the Huron River was vandalized on Friday.

Officers with the City of Northville Police Department responded Friday morning to the home of Tribar Technology CEO Kevin Cramton. Michigan Radio reports that a woman who identified herself as Cramton’s wife said protesters in front of her home chanted, set off fireworks, slashed eight tires on vehicles parked in the driveway, and spray painted “derogatory” graffiti on the garage and driveway.

Police said they detained six people after they fled the scene.

Tribar’s Wixom facility released hexavalent chromium into the sewer system the weekend of July 29. The sewer feeds into the Wixom wastewater treatment plant, which then discharges to the Huron River system. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) initially issued a no-contact recommendation for a portion of the river, but lifted it on Friday after testing failed to turn up anything more than just trace elements of the chemical.
