60 Pipe Bombs Found Outside Philly

Pipe bombs aren't all that hard to make. What's the statute of limitations on pipe bombs, anyway? Because if it's over 20 years then I have to confess to making a few myself back in my teenage years. So, is this something?

Federal officials provided few details about the search of a Malvern storage locker that resulted in the controlled detonation of about 60 pipe bombs Thursday night, though multiple officials confirmed the incident was connected to a federal Ponzi scheme investigation....

The official, who asked to remain anonymous due to the ongoing and sensitive nature of the investigation, said that the storage locker was registered to 42-year-old Istvan Merchenthaler, a Chester County man facing federal charges in connection to a Ponzi scheme that officials say defrauded investors of about $2 million over the past seven years.


Thanks to DA
