Bottle Bomb Explodes in Fullerton

No one was injured in the explosion.

Police say that a "drano bomb" was detonated in the 100 block of Elinor Avenue late last week, but that no one was hurt in the explosion.

A "drano bomb" or "bottle bomb", as Snopes explains, is a mixture of a chemical cleaning solution and tinfoil that when combined in a plastic soda bottle cause an explosion which can be enough to "sever fingers" or "cause 2nd or 3rd degree chemical burns.

The bomb went off around 9:40 a.m. Apr. 13 in front of a home in the 100 block of Elinor Avenue. According to a police report, the Baltimore County Police Department bomb squad responded to the scene.

The report also says that police saw a white male, approximately 5'7" tall with long, dark hair fleeing the area.

No one was injured in the explosion, and no arrests have been made.

Have you seen other bottle bombs in your neighborhood?

i hope by now the editor has forwarded all information on Normal Dolphin to the County police. Any idiot that condones and admits to committing a felony in writing should be investigated. Its usually not the people making the bombs that are injured but innocent bystanders or victims that do not realize what they are and get to close or pick them up and they explode. if you don't think they are dangerous just throw some drano in your eyes and let us know how it works out for you.
