DEER PARK - Investigators uncovered toxic waste in soil sample test results from a Deer Park wetland.

The District Attorney's office says the results show contaminants including asbestos and arsenic in the area near Sumpwams Creek.

Investigators say they believe the debris was illegally dumped there.

Asbestos and other toxins have been found in several locations since last month, including Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood, where the Town of Islip approved a $6 million cleanup.
