82182c7f350bcbecb950b9699b3a8e49Homemade chemical bombs also known as acid bombs, are explosive devices that can be made easily from household items, for example muriatic acid and aluminum foil which can be purchased at a grocery store. When these ingredients are combined and shaken in a capped container, the internal gas pressure generated from the chemical reaction causes the container to expand and explode. The explosion can cause injuries or death to persons in the immediate area of the detonation.


Over the past week our news room has received several reports from concerned residents about children making these acid bombs and detonating them. The Orange Walk Police Department has also received reports from concerned residents and today when we spoke to Officer Commanding the Orange Walk Police Formation, Selvin Tillett, he told us about the risk the chemical bombs pose.


Selvin Tillett, Officer commanding Orange Walk Police Formation.


“Making these acid bombs is a serious offence to use any explosives you must need a license or a permit and other than that it is very dangerous I understand that we have also receive information that students are also manufacturing these things and even they should know that if the police catches anyone of you we can arrest and charge you for a serious offence like dealing with dangerous goods and you are looking to endanger people’s lives because you can even get killed when these things explode and even the artifact of the glass spills.”


This kind of bomb is highly dangerous to persons who make them and to others if detonated in a public place. The public is also reminded that one can be arrested and charged for making or being in possession of such bomb.
