State police and environmental officials on Tuesday searched a home on Brandy Street in Sulphur in their investigation into the August discovery of unmarked chemicals in an abandoned Jeff Davis Parish warehouse.

Trooper Stephen LaFargue said investigators will continue searching the residence today.

Barrels containing the unknown substance were found Aug. 14 in a warehouse just north of Roanoke, near La. 395 and Bryan Road. It was previously owned by United Agriculture Products, which used it to store agriculture chemicals, seed and fertilizer.

LaFargue said at the time of the discovery that a hazardous-materials crew took samples from each container and said the substances posed no immediate threat to the area.
