Feedback: Teen Charged With Making Bomb In Massena
A Massena teenager is in the St. Lawrence County Jail after being charged with making a homemade bomb he said he was going to detonate in an ice arena.
Jordan Page, 17, was charged with a felony count of third degree criminal possession of a weapon and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a noxious material.
Police Chief Timmy Currier tells 7 News that officers seized "a crudely made homemade explosive device" from Page's home at 7 Winters Street Tuesday.
Police described the device as a 2-liter plastic soda bottle containing a mixture of gasoline, lighter fluid, antifreeze, staples, screws and nails.
"Fortunately, the device to light it hadn't yet been put in it so it was still relatively safe and we were able to take it," said Currier.
Currier says Page said he planned to detonate the bomb at the Massena Arena in an attempt to injure people.
Page's house where the device was believed to be assembled and discovered by a family member is adjacent to the Junior-Senior High School and near Trinity Catholic School.
Page was arraigned and committed to St. Lawrence County jail on $20,000 cash bail.
He was one of three people arrested in Watertown in October for allegedly robbing a Watertown man and leaving him in his underwear.
Page was also one of three charged in breaking into the Paddock Arcade the same day.
