Some 10 pounds of TNT and more were found in a trailer in the Hudson Valley.

Last Sunday, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a Philipstown man who owns a commercial lot on Route 9 in the Town of Philipstown.

 

The man told police that he found about 10 pounds of trinitrotoluene, TNT, and a quantity of blasting caps in an old trailer located on the property.

The Westchester County Police Bomb Squad responded to the location to safely remove and dispose of the item.
