Now, What Would You Do With That Much Dynamite?

Big Bear City, CA

Last Wednesday, 686 sticks of dynamite and a 30 pound bag of ammonium nitrate were stolen from a storage bunker at Gold Mountain Mine Company in San Bernardino County.

There's a lot you can do with this stuff, all of it bad. Boil the dynamite and skim the nitro. Mix the ammonium nitrate with Vaseline and get a very serviceable plastic explosive. You can make pipe bombs, shaped charges with coke bottles halves. Pack it into a purse with a couple hundred nails and loops of wire and you've got one nasty bus bomb.

If we're lucky whoever took it only wants it to blow out tree stumps. A whole fuckload of tree stumps.

The FBI, BATF, and local police are looking for this shit, and they've just offered a $25,000.00 reward. If you have any information, give the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department a call at 909-387-3545.

In this day and age (hell, really anytime, but 'speshally now) any person or company that can have that much blow-uppy crap around should face ass-whuppin' of a major financial and legal nature if their security is so off that the stuff can walk in this volume. This is bad, way bad.
