Authorities Find Bomb-Making Material In Currituck Home

Authorities say they found bomb-making materials, and plants that could be made into poisons and flight training papers at a home in eastern North Carolina.

Multiple media outlets reported Currituck County deputies called the FBI to investigate after arresting two brothers in a home they rented near Shawboro.

The brothers' landlord called police after noticing the men were growing plants in the attic of their home.

Deputies say 34-year-old Daniel Robinson II is charged with possession of weapons of mass destruction and poisonous plants that could be used for bomb making. No federal charges have been filed.

Robinson and his brother, 32-year-old Timothy Robinson, are both charged with possession and manufacture of marijuana.

    Any farmer that happened to have some wire, a few flashlight batteries, and maybe some old electric blasting caps from where he had to blow up a beaver dam or some stumps a few years ago could technically be charged with possessing bomb making materials.As for poisonous plants, tobacco plants are some of the most poisonous known.Just look in any book that lists insecticides, and nicotine ranks near the top in deadliness.I'm not making that up.Look for yourself.
