(Lewis County, WA)  A couple out for a walk in Washington State made an explosive discovery.

They found a box half buried in the dirt and dug it up.

The box was filled with wrapped bricks.

Instead of calling the police they packed the bricks in their pockets and went to show a friend.

That’s when they found out they were carrying explosives, dynamite and rocket ammunition.

The bomb squad was called out and collected the evidence.

The devices were buried by an explosives expert who used to live on the block.

Recent rains exposed the box.
