Information:

Two explosive magazines at a quarry site in southern NSW were recently broken into. A significant amount of explosives, detonators and detonating cord were stolen. Oxy-cutting equipment was used to break into the door of one magazine and the locking mechanism of another. Police are investigating the incident. Both magazines were built to Australian Standard 2187, Part 1.

Stock changes were able to be verified as log books to account for the explosives and detonators were kept within the magazines. This enabled police to determine the exact amount stolen.
