Feds Arrest Connecticut Man In New York Explosives Case
NEW YORK (AP) _ Authorities are investigating a Connecticut man who’s accused of selling makeshift pipe bombs from his car in a Bronx parking lot.
The unidentified man was arrested Thursday afternoon at a Co-Op City shopping center.
WABC-TV says undercover officers bought eight crude pipe bombs from him.
Authorities believe he was acting on his own.
A block of Riverview Drive in Bridgeport was closed as investigators searched his apartment overnight.
A Connecticut state trooper suffered a minor injury from one of the devices.
