Camp Minden, LA — As work continues moving 6 million pounds of illegally stored explosives at Camp Minden, the cost associated with moving the product continues to increase.
Explo is several months behind on their rent at Camp Minden, which could be part of the reason that they chose to store explosives outside.
Louisiana District 8 Representative Jeff Thompson wants to make sure that the financial burden of this process is not passed on to taxpayers, since they shouldn't have to play for Explo's criminal activities.
Thompson believes Explo does have some assets, and if needed, wants to use those to help recover the cost for this work.
Litigation is also underway regarding Explo employees seeking money owed to them.
