This is rather scary....
March 3, 2009 at 8:05 AM

Stealing four tons of fertilizer may have seemed like an odd crime once, but not after Oklahoma City, where a fertilizer bomb leveled the Federal Building.  That has police taking Sunday's theft in Frederick very seriously.

The theft happened at a Southern States store in Frederick when someone broke into a building out back and stole 8,000 pounds of fertilizer.

"The suspect, we believe, is somewhere between 45 and 50, white male," said Lt. Clark Pennington.

Police know because a surveillance camera captured the suspect just after 5 p.m. Sunday.  He might have had help because the fertilizer was packaged in 50-pound bags.

Two types were stolen--2,000 pounds of Urea and 6,000 pounds of 19-19-19.  It's the ton of Urea that's raising concern.

It was a fertilizer bomb that killed scores of people at the Federal Building in Oklahoma.  That blast used ammonium nitrate, but Urea still presents some threat.  According to Frederick Police, shoppers must present identification when they buy it.

Hard economic times opens up more potential uses. 

"That's the avenue we're looking at," Pennington said.

Frederick Police are hoping the FBI's lab can exhance the photos enough to reveal a face.  Meanwhile, farms and local businesses will be contacted to see if someone might be trying to sell the fertilizer.

    Where is this at?  This is VERY scary because I can't imagine anyone stealing this unless they were planning on bombing something...seriously doubt its desperate farmers getting the fertilizer they need... otherwise I think more stuff other than just fertilizer would have been stolen. 

    What scares me is sometimes we focus TOO hard on external threats and forget about the ones here in our own country...we tend to forget the 2nd largest terrorist attack was done by 2 white males... its very scary to think somewhere there is all this stuff...

    Just think of the climate created by Palin during the election as well - that Obama is palling around with terrorists.  Gives all the crazies out there ammo to get violent.

    Palin had nothing to do with it. Obama did it himself IF that's how people are taking this.

    On another note that is very scary. Hope they catch the guy sooner rather than later.

Sarah Palin revealed the TRUTH concerning Barack & the trail of Socialistic advisors he accompanies himself w/. Susan Rice...Robert Malley....Samantha Power.....Brzezinski * father & son,  just to name a few etc. And let's not forget Rev. Jeremiah Wright * the radical minister who faithfully preaches Black Liberation Theology which = Marxism Theology!

    Are you kidding me? I reside only 3 hrs. from Chicago for the past 25+ yrs. & previously I lived in Joliet for 10 yrs. 45 min. from Chicago. My father was born & raised in the "windy city" & he frequently reminded me concerning the corruption & socialism in the midst of politics in Chicago. Barack Obama is the fruit of the "Mayor Daley Machine" Barack's political roots were carefully formed from these very ppl. of corruption & far left-wing agendas~
