Police on Manhunt Find Pipe Bombs in Woods

October 01, 2014  | 

State police searching for a man accused of killing a trooper said Tuesday they found two pipe bombs in the Pennsylvania woods during their manhunt that were capable of causing significant damage, reports the Associated Press.

The bombs were not deployed, but they were fully functional and had both trip wires and fuses, Lt. Col. George Bivens said at a news conference.

The weapons were among several items that suspect Eric Frein "clearly hastily discarded" at a Pocono Mountains campsite, said Bivens, who then called on the fugitive to surrender.

Frein, 31, has been on the run since Sept. 12, charged with killing one state trooper and wounding a second outside their barracks in Blooming Grove.
