Reward offered for info on stolen mining company explosives

RENO, Nev. (AP) – The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is offering a $5,000 reward for information concerning the theft of a large cache of explosives stolen from a Winnemucca mining company.

Authorities said the explosives were stolen from Orica Mining Service either late May 24 or early May 25.

The reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery of the explosives or to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Marti McKee, ATF spokeswoman in San Francisco, said the agency wasn’t releasing details on the type of explosives involved or the exact amount, other than to say it was a ”large cache.”

ATF and the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department are investigating.
