Explosives were found as early as May of this year and an arrest was made in June, but 12 more IEDs have been found in Harlan County, according to the ATF and Kentucky State Police Post 10. Specifically, the latest devices were found near the Dave Smith Drainage Area on the Little Black Mountain Spur, which is part of the Woodland Hills Subdivision. The trail cameras in question have been set to explode when batteries are placed in them or via a trip wire.
