SC sheriffs offering amnesty for explosives

Residents can call sheriff's office to have explosives, ammunition, weapons, bomb materials or military ordnance removed from their property

Associated Press

GREENVILLE, S.C.--Sheriffs in five South Carolina counties are offering people a chance to turn in explosives, no questions asked.

Officials in Abbeville, Anderson, Greenville, Oconee and Pickens counties have set aside this week as Explosives Amnesty Week.

People in those areas can call their sheriff's office to have any explosives, ammunition, weapons, bomb materials or military ordnance removed from their property. Certified bomb technicians will respond to remove and destroy the hazardous materials.

Dispatchers will request information about the materials to be collected, including the address where the materials are stored.

Callers aren't required to give their names and no criminal charges related to hazardous materials reported or collected will be filed against people who participate.
