PHOENIX - Phoenix police say explosives used for routine police training that went missing from the city's international airport several days ago have been found on a roadside.
A container with the explosives was taken by someone Friday from a terminal at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport during a police training exercise. Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson says Monday that a motorist who was driving along a south Phoenix street saw the container and recognized it from news reports.
Police say he picked it up, saw the explosives inside and called police. A police bomb squad determined the items hadn't been tampered with and safely removed the container.
Airport officials have said that airport operations weren't interrupted after the explosive went missing.
