Just after 10 p.m. Monday, Lubbock County Investigators discovered thousands of dollars worth of chemicals in a North Lubbock storage facility. Authorities say the chemicals were stolen from Helena Chemical Company during the July 4th weekend.

Authorities tell us they discovered nearly $70,000 worth of stolen chemicals in a storage shed at Warehouses For You on North Frankford, just North of Urusline which is also very close to Helena Chemical on Clovis Highway.

The chemicals have been removed from the storage facility. "Ultimately, there were seven containers of Round Up recovered and 39 containers of Temk. We're looking at a recovery of around $71,000 - $72,000 worth of merchandise," Major Don Carter said.

Right now, there are no additional arrests, but investigators tell us the unit was leased by 31-year-old Jason Lamaster. On July 16th, authorities arrested 32-year-old Troy Fillingam in Lynn County.

Authorities also issued an arrest warrant for 51-year-old Lexie Stanford on July 23rd in connection with this case. We learned he was booked into the Lubbock County Jail just hours before the chemicals were found Monday night.
