Lake Helen, FL (November 14, 2018) – Multiple police departments responded to the scene of an incident where a bomb was found that had the potential to blow up an entire neighborhood block. One man was arrested and charged with the making of explosive devices following a serious incident where volatile chemicals were mixed to make what is known as the ‘Mother of Satan’ bomb, an extremely deadly weapon.
The incident occurred at a home in Volusia County on Pennsylvania Avenue yesterday afternoon, November 13. Police got approval from the man at the residence to investigate his room, which is when they noticed bomb-making materials. The bomb squad was contacted, who then removed the material that was inside multiple mason jars. The materials inside tested positive for triacetone triperoxide. This highly volatile bomb, used by Al-Qaeda, was used by the shoe bomber and in many other familiar terrorist attacks.
The man with the bomb was quickly identified as 37-year-old Jared Coburn, who lived with his uncle in the home. Police continue to investigate the accident and have brought charges against Coburn.
