My guess is everything was collected during stateside training

When the military came out with GPS some military guys started hiding excess ammo at the end of training days.
later they could come back and get it..

a lot of ex military have AR15s and many got there spare 30 round mags from the military

Thing like the SAW gunner having a extra box of belted 5.56 at the end of the training day would hide the box and claim its expended and the next training day they would be issued a full loadout, later they could come back and get it.

You have to wonder how many ex military have a little black book of GPS locations encase the SHTF.

Oh, talk about proof it doesn't require a genius IQ to be a cop sometimes. The cops who discovered that must have puckered so tight they crapped diamonds. I mean, think about this for a moment... Summer time.. Recent heat waves.. backyard shed with sticks wrapped in cloth and marked as TNT. The world unstable comes to mind before even getting to the blasting caps. Wouldn't these things react a little poorly to roasting like a holiday turkey in a burning shed?

Darwin award contender also comes to mind except the quantity sounds like a few neighbors may have needed homeowners claims, to say the very least.

No, the heat wouldn't affect them. I've worked on several surface mines, and the explosives are locked in a steel magazine on the jobsite. You don't keep the explosives in the same magazine as the blasting caps. They must have their own magazine.

Then the fact he had it all stacked together in the same tool shed makes for a serious problem, right?

Now being marked TNT, what would that be exactly? I know Plastic Explosive like C-4 is extremely stable and guys even burned the stuff to cook with as rumor has it. Yet sticks of dynamite have been known to sweat, and as I recall, the sweat is nitroglycerin, right?

I was thinking by the marking and description this was more likely dynamite type explosive than plastic? Oh well... They did really specify I guess and the guy was a fool to have it all stacked together, regardless, right?

And you know what he got?

1,000 bail and paid administrative leave.

1. Why would he leave that stuff around if he and his wife separated and he didn't live there anymore?
2. Why would he leave it outside and unprotected? Maybe it wasn't unprotected, but the article reads like it was.
3. Why was his wife unaware this stuff was there? Nothing is around my house/property that I don't know about...I may not know about some scrap piece of paper, but this is quite a lot to just be unaware of. Is her head in her butt? Did she always know and reported him for revenge?
4. Why was his bail only $1,000?
5. Which exactly of these weapons were stolen? Article states he is facing 4 counts of possessing stolen property, then doesn't say what that was.

Way too many questions to make a judgement here.

We're thinking similarly. The $1000 bail seemed awfully low to me as well. I too wonder if the wife is being deceitful. My first thought after reading that they were separated was that perhaps she somehow sourced the stuff and framed him. But yeah, WAY too many questions to form an educated opinion. This will be an interesting one to watch. If he did have nefarious plans, good thing he was discovered.

S+F, OP!
