Yeah, so I’m just going to drop this here, and walk away:
Just eight days before three people were killed and more than 260 people were injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, a Ukrainian student was arrested in New Jersey carrying two homemade devices.
Rutgers student Mykyta Panasenko, 27, was arrested in Hoboken on April 7 aboard a NJ Transit train bound for Suffern, New York. He was carrying two improvised explosive devices, according to police.
Jersey City Police Deputy Chief Peter Nalbach said Thursday that authorities also found material at Panasenko’s home ‘that may have been used to make an explosive device.’
According to a criminal complaint, Panasenko is charged with having ‘two destructive devices, specifically improvised explosive devices (IEDs) constructed from a cylinder containing Pyrodex (black powder)’ on April 5, the criminal complaint says.
He is also charged with ‘recklessly creating widespread risk of injury or damage to a building which normally contains 25 or more persons by constructing the explosive devices,’ reports the Jersey Journal.
