Man Used a Drone To Drop Explosives Onto His Ex’s Property
Authorities say a 44-year-old Pennsylvania man used a drone to drop explosive devices onto his ex-girlfriend’s property. Jason Muzzicato hasn’t actually been charged with detonating the devices, but he was suspected in a “series of explosions” that had been rocking the area since March. And a neighbor of the ex-girlfriend says it wasn’t just explosives that were dropped via drone: One day, he says, “it rained nails. They came out of the sky. … Nobody was around. Nobody went by and threw them. That same neighbor’s surveillance cameras captured at least one of the explosions.
Muzzicato was first charged with knowingly operating an aircraft without registration, then later charged with illegal weapons possession after authorities say they found explosives and firearms. The father of two, who owns Bangor Motor Works, faces up to 33 years behind bars if convicted but is pursuing a plea agreement.
