Reuters doesn't give much
to go on here, but here's what they say:
NEWARK, New Jersey (Reuters) - A Jersey City man was charged with having explosives material at his home and on a train just days before the Boston Marathon bombings, but authorities said there was no indication he planned to detonate the devices, the Jersey Journal reported on Thursday.
The article on the paper's website also said the man, Mykyta Panasenko, 27, was charged in New Jersey state court and released.
Jersey City police spokesman Stan Eason confirmed that Panasenko was charged but gave no further details.
Panasenko was charged with having at his home on April 5 two improvised explosive devices made from a cylinder containing the propellant powder Pyrodex, the newspaper reported.
The criminal's name sounds Ukrainian, so it's not clear whether he's an Islamist or not. But what is clear is that he is a most foul creature for keeping dangerous chemicals around his quarters.
