HAPEVILLE, Ga. -- A teenager was arrested, Wednesday, after being caught stealing mercury switches from an abandoned Hapeville warehouse.
When police searched the suspect's home, they discovered materials that can be used to make bombs.
Alexander Heath Mason, 18, was taken into custody Wednesday evening on a trespassing charge.
After Alexander's arrest, Atlanta and Hapeville police officers searched his house near Rainey and Virginia avenues, just north of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. While police did not specify what was removed from the home, the teen's father, Allen Mason, said investigators took chemicals.
