EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) -- The theft of 185 pounds of explosives from a southeastern Kansas company nearly four years ago has been partially solved.

Burglars made off with the explosives in September 2008 from a Martin Marietta facility in Butler County. The company used the explosives in its gravel-mining operations.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/L0tx78 ) that a pair of turkey hunters called authorities after spotting the tubes of explosives Monday night near Towanda.

Sheriff Kelly Herzet says cardboard boxes containing the tubes apparently deteriorated over time. He says the explosives weren't dangerous because they lacked detonators, but he's glad they've been recovered.

The ATF in Wichita is continuing to investigate.
