LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The young men and women stranded in the Target parking lot are still waiting for repairs. The group was visited by Calcasieu Parish Animal Control on Monday afternoon, and everything seemed to have checked out. No animals were taken.

The Lake Charles Police Department have visited the bus several times because of calls they have received from concerned citizens. The officers who responded said the large group of people are not breaking any laws, and have complied with law enforcement during any searches.

Business owners within the Target shopping center have all agreed to allow the traveling group to remain there until repairs can be made to the bus. A mechanic is working on the vehicle , but the only hold up is locating a transmission that will work on a bus that is nearly 30 years old.
