An El Monte shoe company, its corporate vice president, the firm's general manager and a trucker pleaded guilty Wednesday in San Diego federal court to charges stemming from a scheme to bribe customs inspectors and ship hazardous waste into Mexico. The scheme unraveled, prosecutors said, when a Mexican customs inspector who was offered a $200 bribe refused the cash and turned the truck and 1,870 gallons of toxic waste over to U.S. authorities.
