Construction Crew Digs Up Military Explosives Buried in Northern Arizona
OutdoorHub Reporters 01.08.18
A startling discovery was made in northern Arizona, after construction workers found a stockpile of military explosives buried in the ground.
According to Fox 10 Phoenix, the ATF claims the explosives were found in a rural area of Pine, Arizona, back in October 2017.
And when we say a “stockpile” of explosives, this isn’t some kind of media fluff that turns out to be a couple sticks of dynamite from the Nixon Administration . . . these construction workers dug up some serious stuff:
The military explosives found at the scene include:
- 80 M112 blocks of military C4 explosive
- Nine M18A1 Claymore antipersonnel mines with firing devices
- One roll of military detonating cord
We don’t know why yet, but investigators believe the explosives had been buried in the ground for nearly 20 years before being dug up by the construction crew.
Also, authorities have announced a $10,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction of those responsible for stealing the explosives.
