A Florida man has been given multiple charges after being accused of showing a 10-year-old boy that was in his care how to set off acid bombs.
A deputy working an off-duty detail in a subdivision heard a loud explosion Monday. When he went to a nearby park to investigate, he saw 30-year-old Joshua Stephen Lapin-Bertone setting off acid bombs.
According to the arrest report, Mr. Lapin-Bertone â€œhad the juvenileâ€ throwing the bombs.
Authorities found more chemicals used to make acid bombs in his car.
He was released on bond and has been charged with four counts of making/placing/discharging a destructive device, and four counts of child neglect.
The child was returned to his mother.
