Wood Dale Man Busted For Explosives Stockpile

WOOD DALE, Ill. (CBS) – A Wood Dale man who claimed to be a fan of the Fourth of July had a stockpile of bomb-making materials, police say.

Bryan Roehr, 24, even tested some of his arsenal outside a local church, authorities say.

He is charged with possession of explosives. Police served a search warrant at his home in Wood Dale Thursday and say they found 5-foot cannon fuses, chemicals and other bomb-making materials.

Roehr is also suspected of planting a bomb in a dumpster behind a Bensenville church. No one was hurt.

Police say they were tipped off to the alleged bomb-making when he sent threatening text messages to a female acquaintance. He allegedly said her 2-year-old son’s bedroom would be “a good place to put a pipe bomb.”

Roehr is being held on $750,000 bond.

    Penny life is what you make it. Wood Dale is not a bad town.Do not judge because of one individual. Evil lives everywhere. I’ve lived here since ’85 and have had no problems. I don’t know where you live so I can’t say but as far as I know fairy tale towns don’t exist anymore.


    Davidd, you’re right! I stand corrected. I apologize and please let me rephrase.Bryan Roehr use to be such a nice boy. Now look at him. Awful, just AWFUL!!!
