Feds Make Arrest in Stolen Red Lodge Explosives Case

Posted: Updated:
NEAR RED LODGE -

A federal official says marshals arrested a man suspected of stealing more than 550 pounds of explosives from a bunker near Red Lodge.

A spokesperson with ATF says 32-year-old Budd James Nesius was arrested on Tuesday on a charge of possession of stolen explosives.

Last April, officials say someone broke into a bunker near Red Lodge and stole those explosives from the U.S. Forest Service.

An affidavit says the explosives were stolen between April 26th and April 29th of 2013 in Carbon County.

In November, the ATF reported the explosives were found.

The ATF asked the U.S. Marshal's office to help with an arrest in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Nesius was arrested in court there on another charge.
