April 1, 2009- Toxic lead could be seeping into the ground in Ormond Beach. The Department of Environmental Protection went back to a home on Santa Ana Avenue on Wednesday to inspect an old, illegal salvage yard and they brought the SWAT team with them.
Department of Environmental Protection police scoured the back yard Wednesday of the unassuming but allegedly poisonous Ormond Beach home. Tables full of testing materials were set up as investigators tried to determine just how far and deep chemicals from old TVs might have leaked into the ground.
"They kicked the gate open, opened the door, and first thing I knew there was a machine gun in my face, they were running through the house," resident Ronnie Brookshire said.
