Man Carried Pipe Bomb In Backpack For Two Years

An Illinois man who was stopped with a pipe bomb in his backpack told police he had been carrying it for two years, reported Tuesday.

Ryan Barton, 20, was charged with unlawful use of a weapon after police discovered the bomb when questioning him about a series of auto burglaries in Wheeling, Ill.

Police said he was not linked to the thefts.

Barton, of Arlington Heights, Ill., gave no reason for carrying the bomb but said a former friend helped him build it.

He was due to appear in court Dec. 9.
