(Newser) – Police at the Anchorage airport lost track of a small quantity of explosives used to train bomb-sniffing dogs. It seems they attached the explosives to one of the rental cars parked in a lot at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport—and a customer drove away with it. Airport Police and Fire Chief Jesse Davis tells KTUU the explosive was recovered hours later in the Anchorage area without incident. He says the amount of explosives in the vehicle was small and didn't pose a threat to the driver or the public, but police are reviewing policies to make sure it doesn't happen again.

And knowing how cops today behave, they will no doubt charge the unsuspecting civilian with multiple felonies for making them look stupid.
