Waterbury police say they've charged a 20-year-old man with making pipe bombs, after his boss prompted an emergency response by bringing the explosives to the police station. No one was hurt.
Authorities charged Michael Dube of Naugatuck on Saturday with illegal possession of explosives, manufacture of bombs and reckless endangerment.
Police say Dube's boss at a door-to-door vacuum sales business found two pipe bombs in a backpack belonging to Dube and brought them to the Waterbury Police Department on Friday night. Police immediately cordoned off the area, evacuated a nearby house and called in the state police bomb squad, which detonated the devices.
Dube is being detained on $250,000 bail and is to be arraigned Monday in Waterbury Superior Court. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
