WOBURN, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – Authorities found pieces of an explosive device near the Woburn-Burlington line for remnants after a suspect taken into custody on Elm Street Wednesday afternoon told them he had recently detonate two pipe bombs in the area.
According to the Woburn police, the parents of 24-year-old Adam Crane called police at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday because they were concerned about their son's well-being. Crane's parents told police their son had recently been kicked out of the military.
Police responded to 79 Elm Street, the home Crane shares with his parents, and attempted to coax Crane out of the home.
The police chief told FOX 25 at first the suspect was resistant, but after some time came out of the home.
Police said Crane cooperated with police and told them he had explosive material inside the home, but not an actual bomb.
The K-9 Unit was sent into the home, and the bomb squad unit was sent into the Linscott-Rumford Elementary School, which is located right across the street from Crane's residence, to make sure the students were safe. The school was deemed secure and the students were dismissed at their normal time.
Thus far, Crane has been charged with possession of bomb making materials; however, the investigation is ongoing.
Police searched the Mill Pond Reservoir for the two pipe bombs Crane told police he had recently detonated.
More charges could be brought against Crane as a result of the discovery of the explosive remnants.
