Louisiana State Police showed a presentation to the House Committee on Homeland Security that described a detailed timeline of events. It started with the October bunker explosion and ended with the fact that there is no more space at Camp Minden...and 3.2 million pounds of M-6 remain unstored.
Police have been running tests on the M-6. It can easily explode or catch fire.
"That still poses a threat to public safety. Doyline is not even a mile and a half away. We've exhausted every option we could," LSP Captain Taylor Moss said.
The bills keep adding up. Explo Systems is already in millions of dollars of debt from a previous explosion. This one is costing more than $400,000.
"Now we've added additional storage facilities, there's more and more Explo isn't paying for. We could be renting that space. If Explo goes under, that's even more the taxpayers are stuck with," Rep. Jeff Thompson said.
Meanwhile a full criminal investigation continues at Camp Minden under the direction of Louisiana State Police. There is no word on when the committee will be meeting again on this issue.
