Authorities have arrested 19 year old Russian boy, Vladislav Miftakhov, in Altoona, Pennsylvania and charged him with possession of a weapon of mass destruction. The police were initially investigating a reported marijuana-growing operation when they discovered something quite different. The bombs and other bomb related material were supposedly recently bout on-line by the suspect. Miftakjov is a freshman at Penn State University Altoona from Moscow, Russia. The Pennsylvania State Police bomb squad “safely deconstructed” the device. Vladislav Miftakhov is currently being held at the Blair County prison.

“He is the weirdest human being I have ever met …”
