In April of 2013, Nesius came upon the U.S. Forestry Services bunker while looking for a place to camp.

He took the 559 pounds of explosives which he thought he could sell to make some money.

The man who stole those explosives faces a potential sentence of ten years in prison.

His sentencing is set for December 4, 2014.
