Spartanburg County investigators found no source or damage from several loud booms reported Monday night in the Chesnee area.

The sheriff's office says reports of arrests or identifying anyone involved in the noise by other media outlets were erroneous.

The Spartanburg County Communications Center received several calls about the "loud booms around 9:00 p.m. Firefighters and sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the Chesnee area, but found nothing.

Anyone with information about the source is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1.888.CRIME.SC.

While the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office drew no conclusions about the source of the noise on Monday night, the Cherokee County sheriff believed a substance known as Tannerite was the source of mysterious booms heard in April of 2012.

Tannerite -- and other similar products -- are exploding gun targets that can cause a great deal of damage and make loud explosive noise.
