Two teens were charged with disorderly conduct and possession of an explosive device after they used toilet cleaner and foil paper to create a "bomb" on July 28, police said.
Officers responded to an arson complaint in the 8300 block of Christiana Avenue around 4:18 p.m. When they arrived they located several teens playing outside. One of the suspects told police "he made a MacGyver [type] bomb and threw it across the street," the police report states.
Meanwhile, a witness told police she was awoken by "a loud noise" during an afternoon nap. After hearing the explosion, the woman went outside and saw a teenager "throw a bomb at another boy across the street," the police report states.
When police spoke to the teenagers they told them they did not know "making a bomb was a big deal," the report states. The two also told police that they poured a toilet cleaner called "The Works" into an empty plastic bottle containing foil paper; the combination ultimately led to the explosion, the report states.
The two juveniles were charged and later released to their parents. No injuries were reported.
