Explosives found in front of West Memphis house

A potentially explosive situation forced police to evacuate two city blocks in West Memphis and forced the Memphis bomb squad across state lines.

Police say a man dumped dynamite and blasting caps on the curb in front of a house just off of Broadway at 21st and Polk.

A garbage truck picked up the explosives and that's when things got interesting.

The bomb squad spent hours searching through the truck's contents looking for the stuff, but hadn't found it at news time.
