Two Charged in Theft of Explosives
TROY, Mo. (AP) -- An eastern Missouri teenager is in custody, and another is being sought by police, in the theft of more than 100 pounds of explosives from a quarry earlier this month.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 18-year-old Dylan Patrick Huber of Moscow Mills was arrested Tuesday, and police are searching for 19-year-old Joshua Tyler Wilcockson of Troy. Both are charged with felony theft, tampering with a motor vehicle and trespassing. Bond for Huber is $100,000.
The theft occurred May 14 at the Fred Weber quarry near Troy, about 60 miles north of St. Louis. Lt. Andy Binder of the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says there was no indication that the men had plans to detonate the materials or use them in another crime.
