2 Teens Face Felony Charges for Homemade Bombs

PRINCETON, Minn. (AP) - Two teenagers are facing felony charges for dropping six homemade bombs around Princeton hours after the discovery of three suspicious packages closed the city's public schools.

With classes canceled and time on their hands, 18-year-old Jeremiah Moliter says he accompanied 17-year-old Joseph Babb on a trip to the store to buy bomb-making materials and then rode along when the bombs were dropped throughout the city.

Moliter says it was supposed to be a prank to cause "a little commotion" in a city that was already dealing with the suspicious packages left at the high school, post office and city building. No arrests have been made in that case.

Moliter faces one felony charge, while Babb is facing two for the homemade bombs left around the city Sept. 30.
