Tuesday - 4/22/2014, 12:20pm  ET

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- 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 (http://bit.ly/1reBCYc ) 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.
