LAKELAND, Fla. -
The Lakeland Police Department is looking for two teens as suspects who made at least 9 acid bombs and left 2 to explode on driveways.
The bombs were apparently made from aluminum and homemade chemicals inside of a water bottle.
Andy Stone was in bed Tuesday night at 11pm, when a loud knock came on the door and he went to answer it.
"I didn't open the door yet, and I flipped on the light in the hallway, and 'bang!' It sounded like a small bomb going off," he said.
He ran after the person who he saw running, but didn't catch them.
Just a block away, that person met up with another that police are also calling a suspect and left in a white SUV.
"It could have blown up in my face or my eyes, or my wife or one of my neighbors!" Stone said.
Lakeland Police quickly responded and found another homemade bomb that exploded near a mailbox, and a backpack.
"There were a total of nine pre-made bombs ready to go in a backpack," Sgt. Gary Gross with Lakeland PD said.
And they're definitely not taking this as a prank or a simple joke.
"It's very dangerous. We don't look at it as a game. We don't look at it as a prank. We look at it as someone committing a third degree felony," Gross said.
Both suspects are described as white males in their teens.
If you have any information, you're asked to call the Lakeland PD at (863) 205-6694.
