USAF Offers Reward For Lost Grenades
The U.S. Air Force is offering a $5000 reward for the return of a missing crate of explosive devices.
The Air Force issued a statement early this week that a crate of grenades had somehow "fallen off" a Humvee while airmen were traveling between missile silos.
A search involving Minot Air Base personnel was called off last weekend after airmen "exhausted" efforts to find the missing container.
The missing ordnance is a belt of linked grenades for the MK 19 automatic grenade launcher, Mountrail County Sheriff Kenneth G. Halvorson said in a statement. “This ammunition is specific to that launcher and will not operate in any other launching device without catastrophic failure,” he said.
The Washington Post has now reported that the Air Force is offering a five thousand dollar reward for "leads on the whereabouts" of the box of grenades.
So - this weekend expect an influx of individuals into upstate North Dakota, combing the countryside in search of the missing crate of munitions.
What could possibly go wrong?
