Tannerite cited in explosion
The explosion heard in three Rock County cities Thursday morning was likely the result of an explosion of a substance known by the brand name Tannerite, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office reported Friday. Capt. Jude Maurer said agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigating the explosion site came to that conclusion. The explosive, which is legal to buy, was placed in a Jeep vehicle of 1990s vintage and likely detonated by shooting it, a stunt that can be seen online in numerous YouTube videos, Maurer said.
