Thirty-two cases of commercial-grade fireworks were stolen Wednesday from a CSX train in the Midwest, authorities said.

The train departed Chicago and traveled to Detroit. It is believed the cases were stolen while the train was stopped in Ohio, Ginger Colbrun, spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives, said Friday.
The theft was discovered when the train arrived in Detroit, CSX spokesman Rob Doolittle said.
While the motive is unclear, Colbrun says it could range from profit to entertainment, based on previous commercial fireworks trafficking cases.
"It is an unusually large amount of fireworks to be stolen," Colbrun said.
The fireworks should be considered very dangerous and not meant for public use. The cases contained 2-inch to 5-inch aerial fireworks.
CSX is working with ATF, which is taking the lead in the investigation. Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call 313-202-3400.

Wonder where they stopped? We need our in-house expert to chime in. Oh, I just had a thought, Spammo probably knows.

If you read the story, from the routing it gives, via Kalamazoo, train would not have gone through Buckeyeland.

Not ta worry however, when the FBI is involved (soon) everything shall become clear! Or rather cleared up. Right.

Mister, Snippy thinks you should worry more as to whether the crew had a proper job briefing upon stopping? Discussing all potential hazards.

Most of the commercial-grade fireworks stolen from a CSX train in the Midwest this week have been recovered, federal officials said Saturday.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said a tip led them to recover 30 out of the 32 cases taken from the train Wednesday.
Authorities have made no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

But Clavalin, did the agents have a job briefing before they recovered the missing fireworks?
