Boston: 68-year-old suspected of leaving fake bombs at military recruitment stations


From the Boston Globe: 

STAMFORD, Conn. —A city man was arrested Tuesday on charges that he twice left a fake bomb package at a military recruitment office, police said.

Francis Monaghan, 68, was charged with two counts of first-degree breach of peace, a felony, and two counts of reckless endangerment, said Lt. Sean Cooney.

“He made certain incriminating statements,” Cooney said. “He did express some anti-war feelings. We think that was at least partially his motivation.”

Monaghan was being held on $100,000 bond.

An envelope slipped into the recruiting station mailbox on Bedford Street Monday morning contained batteries and other “bomb-making components,” Cooney said.

The package was nearly identical to an envelope left at the same U.S. Army/U.S. Air Force station last months, police said.

Both bore “unusual writing” and were placed in the station’s mailbox, Cooney said.
