COPY-Pictures reveal Camp Shelby weapons piled up on Gulfport property

WLOX News is getting a closer look at the weapons allegedly stolen from a Camp Shelby firing range that led to several explosions in Harrison County last month.

The military anti-tank rounds were found at a home on Saucier Lane in Gulfport January 19th, when authorities responded to an explosion that severely injured Dale Ray Johnson.

There have been several arrests in the case. Jimmy Wilson and David Bangs were in federal court Wednesday, charged with unlawful possession of destructive devices. Court documents revealed that witnesses overheard the two talking about the explosives, and that they were stolen from Camp Shelby.

Camp Shelby officials are not commenting at this time, saying the case is still under investigation. When asked if they were aware of any missing ammunition, one spokesperson told WLOX News, "I can assure you the trainers there keep everything under lock and key."

Both Wilson and Bangs are due back in court Friday, when a judge will determine their bond. A third suspect, Jack Wilson, is also in custody on a federal weapons charge.
