MISHAWAKA — An Elkhart man has been arrested and charged in connection to two pipe bombs that were found on Grape Road and Indian Ridge last month, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Jacob Ryan Underwood, 22, is charged with “possession of a firearm, namely a destructive device, which is not registered to him in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.”
According to a release from the DOJ:
Based upon the investigation, the complaint alleged that: Jacob Underwood assisted in constructing one pipe bomb; he watched as two pipe bombs were made and; that he later threw those two pipe bombs out of a car window while he was in Mishawaka, which are believed to be the two pipe bombs found on January 29, 2018. Investigators also received information that Underwood had detonated a pipe bomb outside of his residence, and they found a garbage can outside of his residence that appeared to be damaged by an explosive device.
The pipe bombs were found on January 29.
