STOCKDALE -- Officials here are unsure how an ammunition box containing explosives ended up under a tree off North Sixth Street here. It is believed the box could have been buried there for 10 years.

Chief Edwin Baker of the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department said a city worker was in the area clearing land Feb. 2 at approximately 9:35 a.m., when he unearthed the box after removing a tree. A deputy from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office responded and called Baker, who called LeAnn Hosek, coordinator of the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency. The two then called a bomb squad from the San Antonio Police Department.

Baker said the box contained military-grade items including a teargas grenade, a smoke grenade, C4, and a detonation device, which were safely detonated. Samples also were collected for further analysis by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.
