ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage grand jury has indicted an Idaho company for allegedly falsifying records related to the cleanup of a contaminated pad on the North Slope.

The Alaska attorney general's office in a Friday release says DMC Technologies Inc., of Rexburg was indicted Tuesday, along with CEO Daniel McNair and McNair's son, Daniel Ross McNair. Each faces 14 felony counts.

The elder McNair didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

Prosecutors claim they submitted falsified lab data to the state and to Little Red Services, which hired DMC Technologies to clean up the pad.

The state says the company submitted reports showing the pad was cleaned, but an investigation revealed the pad remained contaminated and that further cleanup is required. The state says that cost Little Red Services $900,000.
