OU Student Faces Charges For Explosives< < Back to
An Ohio University student from Coshocton was arrested and charged Thursday after campus police found two homemade bombs near his campus dorm.
According to reports, 19-year-old Jarrett Allman was charged with unlawful possession of a dangerous ordnance, a fifth-degree felony, in Athens Municipal Court.
He pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance.
According to the arrest report filed by OU Police Officer William Carsey, two plastic bottles were found in the grass near Wilson Hall and an OU parking lot.
After an investigation, it was determined the bottles were explosive devices, known to authorities as "works bombs" or acid bombs.
Officers interviewed Allman's roommate and determined Allman was responsible for the explosive devices.
He was taken into custody just before 4 a.m. on Thursday.
Allman is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on June 4.
