Missing: 250 Lbs. of Explosives
The OC Sheriff's are on the hunt for the 250 pounds of explosives that were swiped from a locked container in the remote Blackstar Canyon early last week. According to abc7.com, "the explosives had been stored for years in harsh conditions and are unstable," and authorities are warning the public that they pose a serious danger to anyone who goes near them. The Sheriff's Department are asking that the thief or thieves get in touch with them so that the blasting powder and other explosive material can be disposed of properly.
