Reuters Exposes Texas Explosion

Paging Walter White. Reuters is reporting that the Texas fertilizer plant that exploded two weeks ago was the subject of multiple thefts and tampering with tanks over the past 12 years. Back in 2002, thieves were taking up to four or five gallons of anhydrous ammonia—a liquid that is used to cook methamphetamine—every few days. However, there is no evidence yet that the leaks caused by the thefts were behind the April 17 explosion.
