Two 9-year-old Florida boys arrested in acid bomb case

ORLANDO — Police say their investigation into acid bombs left on the campus of Valencia College's west campus has resulted in the arrest of two 9-year-old boys.

Orlando police arrested the boys Thursday. A day earlier, they arrested three other boys, ages 13, 15 and 16. The arrests were made after a resident at an apartment complex gave authorities the names of boys she thought had thrown an acid bomb at her door.

The Orlando Sentinel reports acid bombs have been found on the college campus three times over the past few weeks. Police say luckily no one has been hurt.

According to a police report, the acid bomb did about $300 worth of damage to the apartment door.

Police say the bombs are typically made with household chemicals.
