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 is scheduled to be arraigned on several charges in Meriden Superior Court on Tuesday morning. 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 admitted to 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.
Disanti was held on $150,000 bail. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
