Authorities have arrested twin brothers on charges of setting off explosives, or improvised devices, in two Pennsylvania counties, inciting fear and wrecking several buildings, according to ABC News.
Daniel and Caleb Tate, 22, of Cochranville Township, Pennsylvania, were arrested and charged with arson by explosion, arson by possession of explosive devices, conspiracy, theft, and other offenses, the Chester County District Attorney’s office announced Tuesday. It’s unclear whether they have entered a plea.
The report says the brothers allegedly built bombs “from materials such as metal pipes, propane canisters and fuel containers.”
From Dec. 20 to Dec. 31 of last year, the twins detonated the devices, which damaged a mailbox, a phone shed, a produce shed and a well-pump shed in five locations in Chester and Lancaster counties, the D.A. said.
“We live in a world where the thought of bombs exploding around us is a very real fear,” Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said in a statement. “These defendants brought that fear to our region during a two-week crime spree where they detonated multiple IEDs.”
No one was hurt by the explosions, which took place in the early morning.
Daniel Tate is a recent graduate of Pepperdine University in California, and Caleb Tate is a student at Belmont University in Tennessee, reports the district attorney.
State police and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives continue to investigate the matter.
