Teenagers Nabbed Stealing Bomb Components


Three teenagers clutching lists of bomb ingredients they downloaded from the Internet were arrested after breaking into a high school chemistry lab, police said.

A state trooper responding to an alarm at Penncrest High School late Saturday said he surprised the teens as they went through the lab, consulting their handwritten lists of 20 ingredients. On the floor nearby he found a jar filled with nitric acid.

The teens were arrested and released to their parents’ custody. They face charges including burglary, criminal mischief and possession of instruments of crime.
