Police have an arrest warrant for a southwestern Pennsylvania man after finding industrial-strength and military explosives in his home during a search conducted as part of a burglary investigation.
Police say Wilson isn’t charged in the burglary ring, though they got a warrant Monday to search his home about 25 miles south of Pittsburgh after getting information he might be keeping stolen firearms there.
Investigators said they found 40 railway fuses, 46 railway torpedoes, two military M-18 smoke grenades, 76.6 feet of military detonation cord and 6.6 feet of military time fuse when they searched his daughter’s home on Miller Street in Newell, where he had been living alone. They said they also found moonshine.
Wilson is charged with possessing illegal weapons, illegal alcohol, and receiving stolen property, among other counts.
