Hundreds of pounds of explosives were stolen from a pipeline work site in Lancaster County, Penn.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Gregory General Contracting Company reported that approximately 640 pounds of dynamite and 400 blasting caps were taken.

The explosives were stored in a locked truck trailer left at the site on Friday, according to the ATF. The work site security company discovered the theft Monday after noticing the trailer door was open and the locks were missing. The ATF is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the recovery of the stolen explosives and/or the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Stealing or possessing stolen explosives is a federal crime that could come with 10 years in prison. An ATF official is expected to be at the site on Wednesday.
