Fireworks stolen from CSX freight train recovered in Detroit

April 23 Federal agents have found more than 30
cases of commercial-grade aerial fireworks in Detroit after the
explosives were reported stolen from a CSX freight train earlier
this week, officials said on Saturday.

The heist was discovered after a CSX Corp train that
originated in Chicago arrived in Detroit on Wednesday and was
immediately reported to the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms (ATF), CSX spokesman Rob Doolittle said in an
email.

ATF spokeswoman Cherie Duvall-Jones said the explosives,
2-inch by 5.5-inch aerial fireworks, were discovered in
southwest Detroit after someone called in with a tip. The
explosives were believed to have been stolen when the train made
a stop in Ohio.

“They are commercial grade so they are very dangerous,”
Duvall-Jones said.

Duvall-Jones said no one had been arrested in connection
with the theft, but the investigation was continuing.
