Over 500 lbs of explosives stolen from Detroit-bound train--UPDATED!

CSX train in Harvey, Illinois
When you think about it fireworks are really nothing more than prettier bombs.

From NBC Detroit:
Local and federal law enforcement officers are searching for more than 500 pounds of explosives stolen from a CSX train.

Detroit police said fireworks were stolen from the train which fall under commercial-grade explosives.

The train was traveling from Chicago through Ohio to Detroit. When the crates were to be unloaded, all 32 cases had vanished with the exception of one crate that was found near the railroad tracks at Central Avenue and Logan Street on Detroit’s southwest side.

UPDATE 9:45pm EDT:

Most of the stolen fireworks
have been recovered.

From my post at Da Tech Guy:

I walked its streets--the tragedy of Detroit.
