Six Explo employees are now in custody, after being indicted on June 10, by a Webster Parish Grand Jury.

David Fincher, David Smith, William Wright, Lionel Koons, Michael Kile Jr., and Todd Dietrich were the six Explo employees indicted on 10 different criminal charges, all stemming from late November, when Louisiana State Police claim to have discovered more than 10 million pounds of M6 propellant store illegally at Camp Minden.

The charges include five charges and then criminal conspiracy to commit those charges. The 5 charges are, unlawful stoage of explosives, reckless storage of explosives, failure of obtain magazine license, failure to properly mark explosive material, and failure to keep accurate inventory.

Just says before the Grand Jury handed down the indictment, Explo filed suit against Louisiana State Police and were granted a temporary restraining order, giving them back their explosives license, which allows them to continue selling their military grade propellant. A hearing about Explo’s suit against Louisiana State Police was scheduled for June 17, but has been pushed back until July 23.
