Arrests made in Santee chemical bomb explosions

Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (CNS) - Chemical acid bombs made with plastic water bottles exploded in front of a Santee residence Wednesday, resulting in three arrests, but no one was injured.

The bombs exploded in the 9400 block of Mast Boulevard about 5:30 a.m., said Detective Dan Wilson of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. The detective described the damage as minimal.

Shortly afterward, deputies stopped a vehicle nearby and arrested the three occupants, according to Wilson, who said items related to the bombs were allegedly found inside the vehicle.

The arrestees - their names, ages and genders were not immediately released - were booked into county jail on suspicion of possession of an explosive device, Wilson said.

Investigators were looking into whether Wednesday's incident was related to a similar non-injury explosion on Clifford Heights Road. A bottle bomb exploded on a home's front porch in the 8500 block of Clifford Heights Road about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday.
