Commercial Explosives Found Near Great Bend

KSAL StaffNovember 1, 2017

Authorities are saying 80 pounds of commercial explosives found near Great Bend were likely abandoned.

Nearly 40 charges, detonation cords and several hundred blasting caps were found inside a dilapidated building north of Great Bend on Monday.

The Barton County Sheriff’s Office says the explosives were oilfield-related and had been left abandoned by the owners of a business who are now deceased.

ATF agents and the Wichita Police Department Bomb Squad assisted with the removal and destruction of the explosives yesterday morning.
