Massachusetts Home Rigged to Explode at Flip of Light Switch

By    |   Thursday, 26 Mar 2015 07:52 AM

A Massachusetts rental home was rigged to explode at the flip of a switch, but luckily an electrician noticed something fishy while inspecting the house, and called police.

Milton Police Chief Richard G. Wells Jr. told NBC News on Tuesday that the electrician discovered an elaborate rigging system that ran through several rooms of the house, and led to a gallon container containing an incendiary material. The container was hidden behind a recently plastered section of wall in an upstairs bedroom closet.

"The intention was that if someone flipped the light switch on where it ended, the device would’ve exploded," he said. "I have never seen anything like this."

Noting that "it took some work to put it in there," Wells said the department is now trying to get in touch with the most recent occupants of the house, who were renting from homeowner Lindell Williams.

Williams said renters moved out of the house last Sunday. Shortly thereafter, a vandalism charge was called in to the police department. After arriving on the scene, officers found that the drains had been plugged with cement.

This week, Williams hired an electrician to inspect the house so that he could put it up for sale. As they walked the house together, the electrician discovered the bomb's elaborate rigging system and the pair evacuated immediately.
