Military Explosives Found Buried In Northern Arizona

    According to Fox 10, a small cache of C4, Claymores and a roll of detcord was discovered in Pine, AZ.

    Authorities say military explosives were buried for two decades before being found by construction workers in Northern Arizona.

    The ATF says the military explosives were found by a construction crew in a rural area of Pine, Arizona on October 25, 2017.

    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

    Investigators believe the explosives were buried in the ground for approximately 20 years before being found by the construction crew.

    A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of the explosives.

    If you have any information, please call 1-888-ATF-TIPS.
