Some of the explosives that were stolen from an Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline Construction site in Lancaster County this past weekend have been found, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

ATF special agent, Don Robinson says the contents were most likely dumped at that location within the last 48 hours, adding that ATF is exhausting all efforts to find the remaining contents, if there are any.

Charlene Hennessy, a spokeswoman for the ATF, said something related to the theft has been found, but was still waiting for word on what was found and how much of it was found.

The explosives were locked in a truck trailer that was left on-site after workers left on Friday, April 13. Authorities say only about half of the dynamite stolen has been recovered.

Susquehanna Regional Police were alerted of the findings around 2:30 p.m. after a person hiking the trails at River Front Park spotted explosives while walking the trail on Vinegar Valley Road.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection said that it is working with the ATF and, in a statement to WPMT-TV, said that the "Blasting Activity Permit" issued to the contractor has been suspended pending the investigation.
