John Frank Jenkins - Suspect arrested in in connection with Friday's incident

Last Friday’s pipe bomb incident may be over, but it has sent a shock and worry to many in the neighborhood.

Families with small children live on several houses next the site of the incident. I met a resident living very close to the house where the explosive device was found. For good reason, he too was very shaken.

“The explosion happened only several feet from my window.” – he told me with visible concerns on his face. On Friday night, I called our community police officer and have him talk to him. I found him settled a bit after he talked.

Here are a little more I’ve found that I’ve not reported earlier.

From eye witness account, the police came to the Edgewood Rd. scene little after midnight, very early in the early morning. Police car could be seen to block the road.

The explosive device was located near a white van around 4 a.m. The “hazardous device” is currently pending results of a lab test.

Also, John Frank Jenkins, 28, who was arrested and charged with two felony counts of manufacture or possession of a destructive device faces a maximum of 25 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
