Explosives, fertilizer recently stolen
INTELWIRE |
"Nearly three tons of stolen ammonium nitrate are unaccounted for in North Carolina, even as the U.S. braces itself against a possible al Qaeda truck bomb attack... Nearly a month after the theft was reported, 59 bags of the volatile fertilizer are still unaccounted for. Each bag contains 50 pounds of ammonium nitrate. Dozens of similar 50-pound bags were purchased by Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh for use in the Oklahoma City bombing... Five thousand pounds of ammonium nitrate were stolen from a Royster-Clark fertilizer plant in Winston-Salem, N.C., in early July... police had recovered 41 of the stolen bags, leaving 2,950 pounds of ammonium nitrate still missing... Police recently discovered a half-ton cache of ammonium nitrate being stored by suspected al Qaeda terrorists in London... According to the Juneau Empire Online, 'an unknown quantity of safety fuse and one-pound canisters of Pentex cast boosters, a high explosive,' were stolen from an Alaskan company in July."
