Teen Charged In East Wenatchee Pipe Bomb Case
EAST WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - A 14-year-old boy is accused of bringing a pipe bomb to an East Wenatchee junior high school event.
Douglas County prosecutors charged the boy Monday with felony possession of explosives without a license, possession of a dangerous weapon on school facilities and minor in possession of or consuming alcohol.
Deputy Prosecutor Gordon Edgar tells the Wenatchee World the maximum sentence for the three charges is 30 days in juvenile detention.
Court records show the boy told police he forgot the PVC contraption in his backpack when he attended a back-to-school event at Eastmont Junior High School last week. He also told police he
meant to take it off school grounds to see if it would light.
