A chemical search leads police to a Sulphur residence

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - "I thought it was some sort of troopers meeting," said One Sulphur resident.

But, it was no trooper meeting. Police were investigating a lead in the case related to the potentially hazardous chemicals found in a Roanoke Warehouse in August. According to police, in that warehouse, they found chemicals that should have been disposed of in a safe manner.

"State police went in and rendered the chemicals safe. They took a sample of the chemicals and sent them off to a lab to be tested. That is a part of this investigation," said Trooper Stephen LaFargue with Louisiana state police.

Another part of the investigation led them to 909 Brandi St. in Sulphur. The name on the mailbox reads M.J. Anaker, and according to the tax assessors office the home belongs to a Michael Anaker. 7 News placed a call to this residence and no one answered.

"We are going to see if in any way these two addresses are somehow connected in this investigation. As soon as the facts come out we will release that information to the public," said Trooper LaFargue.

According to officials, police plan to return to that residence to continue their search on Wednesday.
