Details Emerge On Greenwood Bomb Making Materials

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Greenwood Commonwealth is reporting more details on the explosive materials found in the city that caused a Washington Street neighborhood to be evacuated Friday. They report that the materials found included hand grenades, a detonator cord, and black powder according to Deputy Police Chief Marvin Hammond. Apparently, the items were originally found in a metal box, draped with blue jeans along Highway 82 by a resident picking up cans and bottles. Looking inside and confirming that the items included a hand grenade, he took the box to a friend’s house with a military background on Washington Street where they alerted police to what they had found. Police told the Commonwealth that some of the materials are military ordinance, and while they don’t know where it came from, they said it is not related to the C130 crash near Itta Bena. The investigation has been turned over to the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
