Teens arrested after placing homemade bottle bombs in neighborhood

FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Franklin police have arrested four teens for placing more than a dozen homemade bottle bombs at the doorsteps of multiple homes in a Franklin neighborhood.

According to police, the teens are 14, 15 and 16 years old and are responsible for injuries Brian Sconyers received after a homemade bottle bomb left on his doorstep in the Polk Place Subdivision exploded in his hands.

Sconyers told Nashville's News 2 he found the bottle on his front porch after his doorbell rang; he thought the bottle was trash, so he picked it up and took it inside. The bottle then blew up.

"It was a white liquid, somebody said it was probably some kind of drain cleaner, like Drano, so it looked exactly like that, but it was that and tin foil," he said.

The 38-year-old man was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, though as of late Tuesday morning he still had not regained his eye sight.

Police found a total of 13 other explosives left throughout the Williamson County neighborhood.

"It started out as one, one ended up being two, two ended up being 10, 10 ended up being 13. So 13 of these devices were actually placed at the doors of residences throughout the subdivision," Franklin Police Sergeant Charles Warner said.

The teens are charged with felony aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
