Explosives were reported missing from the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, California.
(CNN)Explosives are missing from the nation’s largest US Marine Corps base, according to military officials who said Tuesday an investigation is underway.
Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms in San Bernardino County, California, notified the Morongo Basin Station of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department last week, but a department spokesperson told CNN it was not asked to assist with the investigation.
Officials at the Twentynine Palms base could not immediately be reached for comment. The base is located about 150 miles east of Los Angeles in the southern Mojave Desert.
