Thanks for the bump Jet Jaguar.
The Amish are at it again bump...
Thank you for the bump JDoutrider.
I live just a half hour away. I knew nothing of this until reading it here.
This isn’t that big of a place, it’s not going to be easy to hide it.
And, just for people’s interest’s sake... It was MUCH more likely stolen to be resold to get drug money, than for anything else.
96 one-pound blocks of TNT, 17 sticks of dynamite, 180 pounds of black powder, 200 pounds of AMEX/ANFO (a booster sensitive blasting agent), 14 bags of rocket black powder, detonation cord, blasting caps and more.
“Say, a fella could have a pretty good time in Vegas with
all this stuff...”
It could be dopers, but that would be speculation.
We just don’t know (from the articles I have read online).
Yeah, that is my “speculation”, for sure. We’re just not a hotbed of violent political activists around here. Mostly just a few farmers, a whole lot of vineyards, and everyone else wondering how to survive.
I like farms and vineyards.
Nothing like getting into good clean dirt and fresh air.
Isn’t Walla Walla near the Columbia River where all of those dams are?
