California Police Find Pipe Bomb in Man's Pants at T-Stop

June 27, 2014  | 

A 19-year-old man pulled over by Clayton, Calif., police for driving a car with expired registration was found with a pipe bomb in his pants pocket, authorities said Thursday.

Police stopped Joseph Nichols for expired registration at 11:55 p.m., the Contra Costa Times reports. A subsequent search of Nichols uncovered a pipe bomb in his pants pocket, police said.

The Walnut Creek Police Department bomb squad, called to the scene by Clayton police, later rendered the device safe.

Nichols, of Oakley, was booked on suspicion of felony possession of a destructive device, police said.

I just want to congratulate the officers on good police work. As far as the young man (suspect) goes he will have to find another way to get his rocks off.

Capt. Crunch, I don't know if I'd call him a young man...more like scum! God only knows how many people he planned on taking out with that pipe bomb.
