60 sticks of dynamite were found earlier this afternoon and a local bomb squad is assessing the situation

Tuolumne County Sherriff deputies and the Highway Patrol have closed the following roads

There may be an explosion during the 5:00 hour if and only If the bomb squad attempts to detonate the dynamite…..they are wetting it down now and making sure that it is secure

Please stay away from the area….this is not a spectator sport……..the sheriff´s dept is asking the public´s cooperation to stay out of the area until the all clear has been given.
