    Cops: Teen Makes Explosives, Flees Troubled Youth Facility
    necn

    A 14-year old boy from Worcester, Massachusetts, is facing charges after allegedly making two explosive devices.

    Police were called to Lincoln Street to a residential program for troubled youths after an employee reported that the boy had made the devices and then escaped from the facility.

    After evacuating the building, a bomb squad retrieved the devices and dismantled them.

    Police say the teen was seen traveling in a motor vehicle on Lincoln Street. That vehicle was pulled over and a family friend, who was driving, told police the teen came by his house to visit.

    The driver told police he didn’t believe the teen’s story that he had a two-hour pass from the facility and was in the process of returning him.

    He will be arraigned at a later date.
