LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Dynamite stolen from a construction site in eastern Jefferson County has been recovered from inside of a home in Old Louisville.

Louisville Metro police along with investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrived at a home on Garvin Place, near Saint Catherine Street, where the majority of the dynamite was recovered Monday evening. Officials also stated a stick of dynamite was recovered from the same house Sunday evening.

ATF spokesman Special Agent George Huffman said of the explosives, "The majority, if not all, of it has been recovered."

Huffman said the amount exact of dynamite recovered will depend on a physical count.

The dynamite was stolen from North Village, the second phase of Norton Commons' traditional town concept, sometime between Friday, April 10 and Monday, April 13. ATF had offered up to a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of the explosives.

Huffman said crews were called to the home after receiving a call on a tip line, but did not say whether that person would be eligible for the reward.

LMPD, LMPD's Bomb Squad and ATF are continuing to investigate the case.
