More than 700 lbs of explosives stolen in Lancaster Co.

Yesterday they discovered that over 700 lbs of explosives and a whole lot of blasting caps were stolen form a trailer on one of the construction sites for the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline. That is not the way explosives are supposed to be stored, in a box trailer with a pad lock on the door. I am betting it was an inside job . This could get real bad.

Agreed. I am not a criminologist, and did not stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but swiping that much explosive stuff takes planning and execution with a purpose in mind. And having the materials "secured" in piggy-bank does speak to an inside job like you said. Gee I wonder if MS-13, The Pagans or similar civic minded groups would be involved or be interested in using the explosives?

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

You would think they would have security camera or cameras over looking the trailer, treat it like a vault. Money can't harm anyone but explosives can!!

Atlantic sunrise construction has been violating rules all over the place. They couldn't even store the stuff right. Apparently ATF rules require separate magazines for the explosive and the caps. So Atlantic;s people screwed up just in where they put the stuff and how stored. Then to let the thing just sit all weekend is an intentional invitation to trouble.

BTW, where is David Hogg and the safe schools people about this. Shouldn't they be demanding a boycott of Sunoco and some others. Did not take near that much to blow up the school in Bath Michigan. But I suppose, they would figure a way to blame the NRA for this. Imagine the problems if Antifas got the stuff.

they found the explosives and caps on Friday about a mile from the place they were stored at on a walking trail . The ATF believes all was recovered , they think the outfit a sub -contractor from , I think West Virginia had improper accounting practices and bad accounting of inventory
