The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is on the hunt for a Las Vegas man they say is running from justice.

Joseph DeMatteo was added to the EPA fugitive list today after failing to surrender to federal authorities following his indictment for criminal violations of the Clean Air Act.

DeMatteo and several others are accused of falsifying vehicle emission test reports in the Las Vegas area between November 2007 and May 2009. If convicted, DeMatteo faces up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Anyone with information about DeMatteo's whereabouts is being encouraged to contact local police.
