Kaboom in Riverside

New, 7 comments

First, there was that trend of homeowners committing suicide when loan officers came to foreclosure, and now homeowners are trying to take a few of those loan officers with them. Or at least scare them. The LA Times reports that a Riverside man has been arrested for "suspicion of setting up fake booby traps outside his foreclosed home." MSNBC reports that pipe bombs were real enough that a bomb squad was called in last night to blow them up: "At 10:06 p.m. bomb experts blew up the first of several pipe bombs found in the yard. People in the surrounding neighborhoods heard the explosion...Residents who were asked to leave the neighborhood during the investigation were allowed to return home Wednesday morning."
