Three Los Alamos teens were recently arrested for terrorizing a Los Alamos neighborhood for an hour on the evening of Oct. 8.
According to eyewitnesses at the scene of two attacks, the teens were tossing homemade chemical bombs at them out their car window.
Though they didn’t know where they might strike, police were already aware something might be happening. Earlier in the evening, some staffer at Smith’s grocery store called the police and reported what the teens had bought, suspecting that they might be use the ingredients to make chemical bombs.
According to police, the teens created bottle bombs using “The Works” toilet bowl cleaner and pellets of aluminum foil, mixed together inside a plastic bottle. Apparently, when the tin foil and toilet cleaner are combined, it creates a violent chemical explosion due to the hydrochloric acid in the cleaner reacting with the aluminum.
The three young men tossed their homemade bombs into at least two yards during their spree.
