WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) — Wallingford police say they arrested a 23-year-old town resident for making bombs and setting off explosives in his neighborhood.
Nicholas Disanti was arraigned on several charges in Meriden Superior Court on Tuesday and released on $150,000 bond. He faces nine counts of manufacturing bombs and single counts of illegal possession of explosives, possession of fireworks and other crimes.
Police responded to a wooded area near Disanti's home Monday afternoon on reports of fireworks or bombs going off. Officers say they caught Disanti and he acknowledged igniting a homemade bomb in the woods.
Police say Disanti allowed them to search his home and they found black powder, fuses, galvanized pipes and other bomb-making materials.
It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
