Industrial explosives turn up on Sarchí street

Police officers early Tuesday found four packets of explosives on the sidewalk in Sarchí. Police are calling them sausages because they are long and thin material wrapped in a plastic cover. They resemble long, thin carrots.

The Fuerza Pública officers speculated that the explosives are for industrial use and may have fallen off a passing truck. The explosive was identified as the LoDex brand. That product is made in Australia.

Such explosives usually are highly stable unless they are fitted with an ignition device.
