Police have recovered dangerous railway detonators stolen from a parked vehicle yesterday.
Police warned earlier today warned the explosives could cause serious injury if not handled carefully.
The 54 railway detonators, which are strapped to railways and explode with a loud bang when driven over, were stolen on Monday night in the southern suburb Parmelia.
In 2012, News Limited reported that a 15-year-old boy lost his left hand when a railway detonator blew up in his face after he hit it with a hammer.
The detonators were found this afternoon.
