Weirton bomb suspect wanted attention of FBI

Updated: Monday, June 30 2014, 05:40 PM EDT
HANCOCK COUNTY, W.Va. – During a suppression hearing for David Patterson, the man accused of planting explosives around the Weirton Municipal Building, investigators said Patterson wanted the attention of the FBI.
On Monday morning, Sgt. Andy Grishkevich with the Weirton Police Department testified that Patterson told police he learned how to make the alleged explosives on the internet, and described where the three were found.
“The chief defused it by shooting it with his duty weapon, after he shot it, fumes came out of the bottle,” Grishkevich said. “You could actually taste it, our lips became numb and you could smell it -- an ammonia smell.”
In the end, the magistrate found sufficient evidence and bound the case over to Circuit Court.
It will now go before the next grand jury in September.
Patterson, who is charged with three counts of criminal use of an explosive device, returned to jail on his $75,000.
