Explosives missing in northwestern BC
THE SEARCH is on for two boxes of high explosives which inadvertently fell of a truck on the West Kalum Forest Service Road west of Terrace July 16.
One box of Power ProTM (dynamite) was recovered on the road and police are making every effort in locating the remaining two boxes, says RCMP Cst. Lesley Smith.
RCMP believe the boxes fell out of the truck during transportation and are hoping anyone who may have come across these clearly marked boxes, will contact police right away.
The boxes are sealed with PowerProTM printed in large white labels. Power Pro is nitroglycerin sensitized, extra gelatin dynamite formulated for use in surface and underground mining applications.
It can be initiated by extreme instances of shock, friction or mechanical impact and therefore, extremely dangerous and should be handled with care.
If the public comes across any boxes marked as described above, they are asked to leave the boxes where they are and immediately call the Terrace RCMP Detachment at 1-250-638-7400.
