Watertown Men Charged In Homemade Bomb Spree

2/15/12 – Four men from Watertown face felony charges in two counties for allegedly detonating homemade explosives. 17-year-old William Fischer, 17-year-old Nathan Wright, 18-year-old Travis Waters and 20-year-old Jade Hiller are all charged with felony Possession of an Improvised Explosives and misdemeanor Criminal Damage to Property.

Authorities say they made improvised bombs called “works bombs” that are made with a cleaning agent and tin foil in a two-liter bottle. The bombs were planted in December on porches and in mailboxes throughout Watertown, on either side of the county line. Some of the homes targeted were former teachers of the suspects. There were no injuries. The four have all been released on signature bonds and have preliminary hearings scheduled in coming weeks.
