(ELWOOD) - Authorities are trying to determine how a large amount of highly toxic mercury ended up at a home in a small central Indiana city.

Elwood Police Chief Sam Hanna says new homeowners were moving boxes into the home Monday evening when they noticed spills on the carpet. Officials identified the material as mercury.

Hanna tells The Herald Bulletin that about 8 ounces of mercury was found on the floor and up to 20 ounces was found in a bucket at the home.

Hanna says the house, about 30 miles north of Indianapolis, would be sealed off while crews clean up the substance.
