Six executives of a Louisiana company have been arrested on charges of improperly storing explosives.

Among those arrested Tuesday were 65-year-old Explo Systems President David Fincher of Burns, Tenn.; 57-year-old Vice President David Smith of Winchester, Ky.; and 67-year-old Vice President of Operations William Terry Wright of Bossier City, La. Also arrested were 54-year-old Lionel Koons and 50-year-old Todd Dietrich, both of Haughton, La., and 43-year-old Michael Kile of Bossier City.

The men were indicted June 10 and allowed to turn themselves in. Each is free on $50,000 bond. The company was also indicted.

Each man faces five felony charges and five accompanying conspiracy counts.

State officials say Explo improperly stored millions of pounds of military propellant after an explosion, a discovery that led to the evacuation of Doyline, La.
