A box of explosives similar to the two that have gone missing

RCMP continue to investigate missing dynamite in the northwest

RCMP continue to seek information on dynamite that went missing last week, and say it may have been picked up by vehicles on the road.

The Terrace RCMP continue to seek information on two boxes of dynamite that went missing last week, and say they may have been picked up by vehicles on the road at the time.

RCMP investigators have determined that the dynamite was lost from the back of the delivery truck at approximately 12:00 pm, on Monday July 16th, between the 4 and 6 kilometer markers on the West Kalum Forest Service Road. One of three boxes was recovered within half an hour of the loss.

Investigators have confirmed that there were other vehicles on the road at the time that the dynamite fell off the truck and it may be that a motorist picked up the boxes shortly therafter.

“The explosives do pose a health and safety risk to individuals not trained in handling it in addition to the risk to the general public should it not be properly stored at this time,” stated Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

“The RCMP is seeking any information that will lead to the return of these two boxes of explosives.”

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this material or anyone who wishes to assist in seeing it safely returned, the RCMP ask that they contact the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7415 or their local police services.

As well as the investigation by the Terrace RCMP, an internal investigation is being conducted by Orica Canada, the company that lost the boxes, about how it can be prevented in the future and if any disciplinary action is needed.
