Enough dynamite to do some serious damage was stolen from a worksite in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. ATF Special Agent Charlene Hennessy said 16 cases were reported missing which each holding 40 sticks of dynamite totaling 704 pounds. "The amount of explosives taken has led us to take this very seriously," Hennessy said.

The ATF's first report indicated 640 pounds of the explosive were stolen but they have since updated that number after an additional case was confirmed missing. The dynamite cases were stolen from a locked truck trailer at the Gregory General Contracting Company site in Marietta. The theft was reported Monday after a worksite security company noticed the trailer door was ajar and the locks were missing. One case of the missing explosive is enough to cause serious harm, here is just one box of dynamite exploding in a controlled setting.

We are asking for the public's help in our effort to locate these explosives and to apprehend and convict those responsible."
