DOYLINE, La. -

The Bossier Webster District Attorney's office has released the job titles of the six Explo employees who turned themselves in to authorities last week.

All six employees who were indicted, surrendered to authorities a week ago.

David Fincher, William Wright, Michael Kile Jr., Kionel Koons, David Smith and Todd Dietrich were all booked into the Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center on a laundry list of charges pertaining to the improper storage of explosives at Camp Minden. Among the charges are unlawful storage of explosives, reckless storage of explosives, failure to obtain a license for the bunker, failure to mark and inventory the explosives and conspiracy. The charges are all felonies.

Fincher and Smith are listed as owners of the company. William Wright is listed as Vice President of productions and operations. Kionel Koons was the inventory control manager. Michael Kile Jr. was the quality safety manager and Todd Dietrich was a plant engineer.

A judge ruled that Explo Systems, Inc. will hold on to their license for now. Explo's owners claimed that their constitutional rights were violated last month when state police yanked their license and took the keys to the facility but the Louisiana State Police said it was done for public safety.
