704 Pounds of Dynamite/400 Blasting Caps Stolen From Construction Site in Pennsylvania

More explosives than originally thought were stolen over the weekend from a pipeline construction site in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. The total amount of Dynamite stolen was revised from 640 pounds to 704 pounds, as well as 400 blasting caps, ATF says.

The stolen items could be used to create hundreds of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), which could be deployed to one or more locations. The potential for death, injury and destruction is enormous.

Responders should be aware of the potential for additional explosions intended to target responding resources.
