ANCHORAGE, Alaska >> Police at the Anchorage airport lost track of a small quantity of explosives used for training bomb-sniffing dogs.

The explosive was attached to a rental car that a customer drove away Monday at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

Airport Police and Fire Chief Jesse Davis tells KTUU the explosive was recovered Monday afternoon in the Anchorage area.

He says the amount of explosives in the vehicle was small and didn't pose a threat to the driver or the public.

The department is reviewing policies to make sure officers don't lose track of explosives again.

TSA "found" evidence of explosives at HNL on one of our Boeing 747s. Flight delayed! The airplane had been used in an earlier training exercise and left residual "evidence". No bomb.
