Dynamite Found in Barbour County

Two cases of dynamite are believed to be buried on a piece of Barbour County property.

Days before an estate auction, the Barbour County Sheriff's office received reports that two-cases dynamite and some hand grenades are buried in a refrigerator on the property being auctioned.

The report was filed by the property owner's son, who says he helped bury the explosives 18-years ago.

The sheriff's office, with help of the Dothan police bomb squad, dug Friday in the area where the explosives are suspected to be buried.

Nothing was found, according to witnesses, the explosives still remain in the ground somewhere on the property.

That property is set to be auctioned off Saturday.
