BAL HARBOUR, Fla. (WTXL) — Authorities say three floors of a South Florida high-rise condominium have been evacuated after a property manager found chemicals in a unit where a tenant had been evicted last week.
Miami-Dade police spokesperson Alvaro Zabaleta says the chemicals were “consistent with a clandestine lab.”
Officials say the residents of the 14th, 15th and 16th floors of the Majestic Towers Condo in Bal Harbour were evacuated Monday afternoon as a safety precaution.
Bal Harbour is a wealthy community north of Miami Beach. Miami-Dade police say the bomb squad and narcotics detectives were assisting in the investigation.
