Florida officials said an anonymous tip led them to a stash of Mason jars filled with a highly explosive powder – similar to the type used by Islamist terror groups in a string of overseas bombings.
Lake Helen police officers and Volusia County deputies descended on a South High Street home and reportedly discovered jars filled with a white crystal powder called triacetone triperoxide – or TATP.
The powder is used by terrorist groups, such as ISIS, to make so-called “Mother of Satan” bombs.
Jared E. Coburn, 37, lived in the home and reportedly told police he was using the powder to make homemade fireworks. He was charged with manufacturing an explosive device — but could face additional charges.
