Pipe Bombs: Pennsylvania Police Hunting Eric Frein Find Devices

By    |   Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 07:07 PM

Pennsylvania state police have found two pipe bombs left behind by accused sniper Eric Frein at a Pocono Mountains campsite.

Frein has been the subject of a massive manhunt since authorities say he ambushed two state troopers on Sept. 12, killing Cpl. Byron Dickson and seriously injuring Tpr. Alex Douglass at the state police barracks in Blooming Grove, Pennsylvania.

At a news conference following the pipe bombs' discovery, The Associated Press said, Lt. Col. George Bivens called on the self-taught survivalist and sharpshooter to turn himself in. Bivens said Frein is “stressed” and making "significant mistakes" while on the run and believes Frein left the campsite in haste.

Authorities said the devices were fully intact but if deployed could have caused significant damage. Because of evidence that Frein experimented with explosives, police are taking extra precautions in their search.

Frein is believed to be hiding in a remote area near his parents’ home in Canadensis, Pennsylvania. The public has been warned to be on the lookout for Frein, and at least one person reported seeing him since Monday afternoon.

Authorities say Frein, a survivalist, has a vendetta against law enforcement and in the past expressed a desire to kill officers or commit mass murder.

Frein is now one of the FBI's 10 most-wanted fugitives with a $100,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest.

Deer hunting season kicks off in the area this weekend, and hunters are being asked to remain vigilant.
