Bomb Squad Removes Explosives from San Carlos Business Complex

More than 50 commercial-grade detonators were discovered.

A San Mateo County sheriff's bomb squad removed dozens of detonators and two pounds of explosive detonation cord from a business complex in San Carlos on Tuesday.

More than 50 commercial-grade detonators were discovered, along with the detonation cord, in a storage area in the 900 block of Washington Street at 1:05 p.m., according to the sheriff's office.

Bomb squad technicians separated the detonators from the cord, which is manufactured from highly explosive plastics, officials said.

The explosives were taken to a remote location and rendered safe, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators believe the bomb-making equipment had been collected from the home of a retired commercial explosive blaster who recently died.
