Breitbart Texas reported:

Two explosives were found near an Arizona bridge approximately 30 miles from the U.S. border with Mexico, according to a leaked report exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas. The items were made from water gel commercial explosives and were ammonium nitrate based, according to the leaked official report from the Joint Intelligence Operations Center (JIOC).

The materials were found near Amado, Arizona by two Arizona Department of Transportation employees who were reportedly inspecting the bridge. The report asserts that the explosives contained the power to cause partial damage to the bridge, but lacked the required blasting cap to ignite the explosion.

A federal agent leaked the report and spoke to Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity. The agent stated, “The town of Amado is in the vicinity of a major U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint facility. It is also a major arms and drug trafficking corridor. This could have been an effort to divert law enforcement resources or even a larger issue involving a plot to either blow up the bridge.”
