Acid Bombs in San Rafael Park
Case# WCSO13-
Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $500.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect(s) wanted in connection with the acid bombs found in Rancho San Rafael Park Reno, NV. On June 27, 2013, at approximately 6:30 a.m., Rancho San Rafael Park Rangers discovered several suspicious looking plastic bottles near the bathrooms of one of the park’s picnic pavilions. The bottles were identified as what is commonly referred to as “acid bombs.” Rangers also observed what appeared to be an additional device which had been discharged prior to being discovered. The Rangers took appropriate steps and notified the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office. “Acid bombs” can have several different names such as works bombs, chemical bombs, Drano bombs, bottle bombs, and MacGyver bombs. These devices are usually made with plastic containers, and will contain a volatile household chemical (e.g., toilet bowl and drain cleaners) combined with other ingredients to include aluminum foil. The internal gas pressure generated from the chemical reaction causes the container to expand and explode. The reaction in the bottle creates a large amount of heat and the boiling hot and caustic liquid is dispersed around a fairly large area when the bottle explodes. The plastic from the bottle can be very sharp and can also be thrown at a high velocity. Washoe County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect(s). Anyone having information relating to this crime or the suspect(s) should contact the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office at 328-3320, Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com, or text your tip to 847411 (TIP 411) Keyword - SW.
