LAMPASAS, Texas (KWTX) Lampasas County deputies found old blasting caps and explosive materials after responding Monday to a landowner’s report of “suspicious circumstances” at an address on South River Road, Lampasas County Sheriff Jess Ramos said in a press release.

“The caps and explosives had manufacture dates over 20 years old and were possibly unstable,” he said.

An Explosives Ordinance Disposal Team from Fort Hood was requested to render the explosives safe and transport the material back to post for disposal, Ramos said.

“At this point there is no criminal act suspected and no criminal investigation is warranted,” he said.
