Spent explosive found in recycling

July 1, 2014

A used explosive device was discovered at the Auglaize County Recycling & Solid Waste facility at 1:30 p.m. Friday, June 27, on St. Marys River Road, St. Marys.

According to the report, an employee called the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office to report the device found in a cardboard box, which was taken outside of the building.

The responding deputy was taken to the location of the device, which was identified as a “spent” CTS (Combined Tactical Systems) Flash-Bang.

According to the Combined Tactical Systems website, the flash bang is a Class-C explosive non-lethal device that emits a bright light and loud noise and is used to distract potentially dangerous individuals in a tactical situation.

The deputy photographed and collected the device. According to employees, the device would have been dropped off by a Wapakoneta or St. Marys recycling truck.

The Flash Bang was placed into outside evidence at the sheriff’s office.
