FREDERICK, MD - Police in Frederick have an unusual crime on their hands. Someone took off with four tons of fertilizer.
8,000 pounds of fertilizer was stolen from the Southern States store.
The Frederick Police Department says they have surveillance tape of the theft and believe a white man between the ages of 45 and 50 may be the suspect.
Investigators believe the theft occurred on Sunday afternoon.
The contents of the fertilizer have the police concerned that it could be used for making a bomb.
The thief stole two types of fertilizer: Triple 19 and Urea. Police say the Urea is more dangerous of the two because it contains hydrogen.
"We want to make sure that we covered all bases. We want to make sure that the Frederick community understands that we are following through as far as we can possible go with FBI and other agencies," said Lt. Clark Pennington with the Frederick Police Department.
Fertilizer is one of the materials that was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings.
