LA police find dynamite cache following standoff

A cache of roughly 50 pounds of old, deteriorating dynamite was found in a warehouse following a standoff, and authorities burned down the building after determining the explosives were too dangerous to move.

Police believe the location was being used to house stolen goods and that the dynamite was not connected to terrorism.

I'm glad they recovered 50 pounds of dynamite and while it may not have been stolen with the intention of using it for terrorism, who do you think would be in the market for such an item? Normally it's the televisions and the stereos that people buy if they "fall off a truck" not 50 pounds of explosives.

"Um yes, I need a crate of unstable combustibles to use as a coffee table and I'm just not willing to pay the normal asking price."
