Sandcrawler PSA: Never Try To Turn In A Pipe Bomb At A Gun Buyback

Man Arrested After Trying To Return Pipe Bomb At Gun Buyback

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A man was arrested during the city’s sixth gun buyback event over the weekend after showing up at a drop-off location with a homemade pipe bomb.

KNX1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports that the man wanted to turn in the explosive.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said the man “told the officers in the line that he had spoken to God that day, and God no longer wanted him to use that bomb to blow up the Hollywood sign, now he wanted him to turn it in.”

Well, at least he tried to do the right thing by turning in the bomb before the voice in his head said don't turn it in.
