Washoe Bomb Experts Called to Help with Old Ice Chest Full of Dynamite

Washoe County’s Bomb Squad was called into action Monday after the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office received information that aging explosives had been found at a residence on Indians Road in Janesville.

According to details provided by the LCSO, deputies contacted the reporting parties who had been cleaning up the property and found what appeared to be blasting caps in an ice chest.

“Upon arrival at the residence, Deputies observed the contents of the ice chest,” explains LCSO Sergeant Bryan Sullivan. “Based upon their training and experience, they believed the ice chest to contain old dynamite. Moreover, the dynamite appeared to be in the advanced stages of decomposition, making it likely unstable.”

A perimeter was established in order to keep the public at a safe distance from the scene.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Consolidated Bomb Squad was contacted and briefed on the situation. Once on scene, bomb squad personnel concurred that the devices were dynamite.

“A robot was used to transport the ice chest to a blast container. The devices were safely transported out of the area to be detonated.”

Sergeant Sullivan and the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office thanked the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Consolidated Bomb Squad for their assistance with the incident.
