Self-Storage Auction Winners Discover Explosives and Gunpowder in Unit


The winners of a self-storage unit auction in Belchertown, Mass., last weekend called police after finding explosives and gunpowder in the unit. 

Investigators spent hours Monday combing through the contents of a unit at Amherst Self-Storage. They found ammunition, gunpowder and suspicious wiring.

The investigation team included FBI agents, the state police bomb squad and the fire marshal’s office. The hazardous materials were removed. Investigators plan to contact the person who rented the unit.
