House for sale set to explode when light switch is turned on

Excerpts:

Investigators in two Massachusetts cities were seeking the renters of a house for sale that was intricately wired to explode and cause “significant destruction” if someone had simply flipped a light switch, police said Tuesday night.

“It took some work to put it in there,” said Wells, who described the mechanism as involving wires meticulously snaking through several rooms from a gallon container of an incendiary substance, which was “secreted inside the house,” to a particular light switch.

“We believe the intention was that if someone had flipped the light switch on where it ended, the device would have exploded,” he said.

My comment: Wow!! Be careful out there… especially with disgruntled tenants on a sale!!
