I do not know of truth to this, but heard it from a realiable person.
Said a Wisconsin Geocacher had cached'and found a ammo box that was unusaul at best. Saw the ammo box had wires running into the ground. Then apparetnly law enforcement came out and dismantled the cache and it had wires runnning to a small battery buried underground. Inside they found some probes dipped in some kind of powders and a small note inside. The most disturbing part of the story was he said mounted on a tree approx. 20 feet away there was a moition activated camera that logged all video onto a small disc in the unit.
This sounded very very scary, stay safe out there foiks...

Sounds like a rumor all right.

Does not sound reliable for a few reasons.
1.The video recorder sounds a bit expensive.
2.a battery burried spells battery problems.
3.ammo boxes have have plenty of room to hold a small battery.
4.local authorities tend to react to this sort of thing by blowing-up the container, not by disassembling it.
5.what would the purpose of this thing be, the note inside suggests it was intended to be opened safely.
I think the story is more suspect than the container.
