Culprits have been plaguing a neighborhood in Commerce Township with homemade “bottle bombs,” according to Oakland County Sheriff’s Department officials
A homeowner in the 3000 block of Timberbrook Court heard a loud bang around 3 a.m. on July 6. The next morning he discovered that a plastic Kroger water bottle filled with a blue liquid and balls of tin foil had been placed in the front of his boat, which was on a trailer in his driveway. The bottle was melted and had caused slight damage to the boat’s seat cover, the side metal handrail, and the boat cover.
A similar water bottle was found at a residence a half-mile away in the 3000 block of Forest Edge on the morning of July 11. The night before the homeowner had heard a loud boom, and in the morning she found a plastic Kroger water bottle containing blue liquid and tin foil in her backyard.
A similar bottle was found June 26 on the sidewalk in front of her house. No damage was caused in either the June 26 or July 11 incident.
There are currently no suspects.
