ODESSA - Explosives from the Odessa Halliburton yard have been reported missing, according to Odessa Police.
The OPD Bomb Squad Unit was made aware of the undetermined amount of missing explosives earlier today. According to police, the explosives were supposed to be transported from Odessa to the Halliburton location in Reeves County. The explosives are described to be oilfield igniters that are approximately 2 inches in length and half an inch in diameter.
These explosives have no printing on them to indicate if they are hazardous or not.
CBS 7 has provided the public with a diagram of the explosives to the left of this article.
The Odessa Police would like to warn the public if you happen to come into contact with any of these explosives to use caution and report them immediately to police.

Well I'm still curious as to why someone would want to steal those explosives though. Just musing here, but they could do a lot of damage to a pipeline or perhaps even a water tower, could they not? Could they penetrate steel ships? And since they appear to be specialized explosives, just how many of those things would Halliburton need and have on hand?
