Police: Acid spill in Sioux Falls building was intentional
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police say hydrochloric acid found on the floor of a Sioux Falls building was put there on purpose.
The Argus Leader reports some businesses in the Harvester Building closed briefly on Friday after the spill was discovered about 11 a.m. Firefighters in hazmat suits cleaned up the spill.
Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the spill was “definitely intentional.” He says none of the businesses in the building use the acid that can cause severe chemical burns to skin.
There was no immediate word on any suspects or a possible motive.
