Remember when kids would just cause explosions with chemistry sets? Well, 18 year old Jackson Lam was at home in Woodhaven making pipe bombs and threw one out a window yesterday afternoon. Good one! As if that wouldn't make neighbors call the police, who would then come and investigate. The neighbors did just that when they heard the explosion, and the bomb squad found Lam and his neighbor, Raoul Cano, with another pipe bomb that they were going to explode. WABC 7 reports that Lam learned how to make bombs on the Internet. Of course.
The two were arrested for criminal possession of a weaspon and reckless endangerment.
