(KMOV.com) – Police in Iowa found enough explosives to level a two story building in the home of a teenager because of a tip from his teacher.
Authorities said they were alerted by the teacher who saw the teen researching explosives on a school computer. While there wasn’t a specific threat, the sheriff said the teen planned to blow-up a building in the next month.
Both the teen and his mom, who was living at the home, are charged with possession of explosive materials.
