Fire marshal’s office has three suspects in case of homemade bombs

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WINSLOW, Maine — The State Fire Marshal’s Office has located three suspects in connection with a series of fires caused by homemade bombs this week.

Sgt. Ken Grimes is withholding the suspects’ names because they haven’t been charged, but said it’s likely they won’t be arrested.

“They’ll probably just be summoned to court,” he said. “Some will probably be getting charged in the next week or so.”

Grimes said no injuries or property damage have been reported.

The most recent incident took place Thursday when a device left a scorch mark roughly two inches in diameter in the parking lot of Winslow Junior High School.

Grimes isn’t sure what the suspects’ motive was or what exactly they were attempting to construct.

“We want to make sure the public knows that the behavior has stopped,” he said. “We’re really not sure what they were building yet.”
