Police recover 18 bombs from teen's home, car
(CNN) -- In a case that started as a hit-and-run accident, federal law enforcement and local agencies Monday recovered more than a dozen bombs, as well as bombing-making materials, from the home of a high school student, a Cary, North Carolina, police statement said.
Six pipe bombs were also found in the teenager's car.
According to police, Jarrett William Brown, 17, "has been cited with hit and run and is expected to be charged with numerous counts of possession of weapons of mass destruction."
Brown was involved in a hit-and-run traffic accident around midday in Cary -- in the greater Raleigh area -- and was stopped a few minutes later in Apex, North Carolina, where police found half a dozen pipe bombs in the front seat of his car, police spokesman said.
The discovery prompted a search of Brown's house in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, working with local police, fire and emergency management departments, and also resulted in the evacuation of several homes in the neighborhood.
Residents were later allowed to return to their homes.
