SHREVEPORT, La. - A company accused of improperly storing tons of explosives has sued Louisiana State Police to get back its revoked licenses.

The Times of Shreveport reports, Explo Systems Inc. and its owners filed suit late Friday in state court in Baton Rouge.

State police tell The Associated Press they are reviewing the lawsuit.

Authorities have said the explosives recycling company improperly stored tons of a military propellant at Camp Minden, causing evacuation of the town of Doyline last year.

The company has not been charged with any crimes but state and federal investigations are continuing.

The owners claim their constitutional right against unreasonable seizure was violated when state police, without warning, took all licenses and keys to the storage magazines in May.
