(WFTV) – An anonymous tip led officials to a Lake Helen home, where they discovered Mason jars filled with a highly explosive powder, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday evening.
Lake Helen police officers and Volusia County deputies said they were called to the home at South High Street and West Pennsylvania Avenue, where they found jars containing triacetone triperoxide, a highly volatile explosive.
“This guy is also highly intelligent. We’re not talking about Joe Schmo who got online and decided to do this,” Sheriff Mike Chitwood said.
“Did he have more sinister plans? We don’t know. But the bottom line is, if you take this as mundane, that he was a frustrated chemist and just playing chemist, he still had the potential to blow up the block.”
