The feds misplaced something: 559 pounds of explosives!

Actually, the items belonged to the Forest Service and were stolen sometime in April from a storage bunker just south of Red Lodge, Montana. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the return of the highly-volatile explosives.

Also taken were cast boosters and detonating cord. The items were routinely used by the Forest Service to clear rocks and slides and other debris, as well as for trail construction and even snow removal. ATF officials say whoever took the explosives could face a 10-year prison sentence.

Officials are certain it was in April because some demolition work had been done in late March and the explosives were still in the bunker. Forest Service officials did not indicate if the bunker was in plain sight or was hidden.
