A woman cleaning her Center Grove area home Tuesday found something unexpected: two 12-year-old sticks of dynamite.

The woman and her husband worked as Indianapolis Police Department officers before it merged with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, and her husband had been a certified member of the bomb squad, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Matt Rhinehart said.

The former bomb squad technician died about 12 years ago but hadn’t told anyone about two sticks of dynamite in a military ammunition crate in the home in the 4000 block of Cedar Hills Drive, Rhinehart said.
