RURAL GEORGIA – The Georgia Department of Public Safety (GDPS) stopped an 18-wheeler on Monday and discovered that the driver had no hazmat endorsement, shipping papers or placards for a load of class 1.4 explosives.

Examples of 1.4 class explosives include empty primed grenades and some small arms ammunition.

According to a GDPS Facebook post, officers found that the load was unsecured when they opened the trailer. The GDPS did not indicate what type of 1.4 explosives were found, nor did they state where the stop occurred.

The driver was not named.

“Glad we stopped this CMV in Georgia, this unsafe load was headed for Utah,” the GDPS post stated.
