Teen Arrested for Columbine-Like Plot Had 6 Bombs Hidden in His Bedroom

Horrifying 13

west albany high schoolA 17-year-old Oregon teen was arrested after police found at least six bombs he was planning to use in a Columbine-style attack at his school -- West Albany High school. Grant Alan Accord will be tried as an adult with two counts each of possession of and manufacture of a destructive device.

Beyond the methodical and heinous nature of this kid's planning and thinking, I can't get over the fact that he was making and hiding BOMBS IN HIS BEDROOM. And we're not talking little bitty science project explosives. The police say they found pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, and a napalm bomb hidden in a secret compartment beneath the floorboards of his room at his mom's house. 

Mind blown!

It's unclear exactly what information led police to Acord's stash of bombs but thank God they got there when they did. No doubt school administrators, teachers, students, and their families are gasping a huge sigh of relief (but still losing a lot of sleep) over how close they came to mayhem on their lives.

Can you believe how dangerous a single teen on a mission can be?
