WHETSTONE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Cochise County say they have seized 36 blasting caps that were found in a store in Whetstone.

County Sheriff’s officials say workers were cleaning and re-organizing the store Monday morning when they found what appeared to be explosive blasting caps.

The Sheriff’s Office bomb technician responded to the scene along with an officer from the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Authorities say the non-electric caps were located in a glass display case on a shelf inside the store.

The caps have been removed from the scene for disposal.
