Authorities may be offering the hefty reward out of fear the explosives will somehow be used in some type of future attack or improvised explosive device much like the recent Austin bombings in Texas

LANCASTER COUNTY (INTELLIHUB) — Federal authorities are now offering a $20,000 reward for information pertaining to a recent heist in which seven-hundred pounds of explosives (dynamite) along with 400 detonators (blasting caps) were stolen out of a locked truck trailer parked at a local construction site over the weekend.

According to ABC News: “The company is a subcontractor of Williams Partners, which is managing the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project in Lancaster County.”

Please take note, the reason authorities are offering so much money for a lead is presumably because they feel the explosives could be used in a future attack or many IED-style attacks much like the recent bombings in Austin, Texas.
