Cash reward for finding Walla Walla explosives

Posted: Updated:

WALLA WALLA, Wash--  $25,000-- that's how much you could walk away with if you have any information about who stole more than 100 pounds of explosives.

The explosives were stolen last month at the Walla Walla Airport Industrial Park.  Now police are turning to you for help.

For weeks now the Walla Walla Sheriff's Office, alongside the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been searching for answers.  Still nothing.

Here's a sample of some of the explosives stolen: 96 pounds of TNT, 17 sticks of dynamite, 180 pounds of black powder, and several hundred feet of detonation cord.

The immediate concern is safety; police say in the wrong hands these explosives can pose a serious risk to the public.  That's why there's now a huge reward.

"There's a real concern when there's these types of explosives out there, and they haven't been recovered," says Sheriff Mike Humphreys with the Walla Walla Sheriff's Office.  "It's really important we get those back and into a safe environment."

To get the money, you have to lead police not only to an arrest, but also a conviction.  If you have any information here's the number for you to call: 1-888-283-2662.  All calls are confidential.
