Explosive found inside Tunica Hotel

Employees of the Veranda Hotel at the Grand Casino in Tunica were replacing furniture in the hotel Friday when they found an explosive, that could have been a stick of dynamite, in a vacant guest room. According to a spokesperson with Tunica County, the explosive was found without blasting caps or any other type of detonation device. It was removed without incident.

The hotel was evacuated while officials looked for additional explosives. Authorities did not know how long it had been there. The hotel, casino, and all roads around them were opened shortly after the explosive was removed.
