Video Warns Students, Parents about Homemade Explosives

Over the past couple of years, a rash of homemade explosives and over-pressure devices have been made by students as end-of-the-school-year pranks. The majority of the students involved were successful in school with promising futures. As a result of their poor choice, these students were arrested, charged with felony crimes, lost scholarships, and/or were denied entry into the military. In an effort to inform students and parents of the inherent dangers of homemade explosives and the consequences of creating them, the San Diego Metro Arson Strike Team (MAST) has created a short public service announcement. For further information, please contact MAST Det. Chris Everett at (619) 236-6815 or School Police Sgt. George Anderson at (619) 725-7000.
