NY twins arrested for bomb making

NY twins arrested for bomb making

Cops have busted twin brothers from the Bronx for allegedly stockpiling explosive materials and crafting bombs inside their home - with help from high school students.

Christian allegedly met the youths through his job as a teacher and offered to pay them $50 per hour to "break apart fireworks and store the powder that came out of the fireworks in containers", the complaint says.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and NYPD officers arrested Tyler Toro and Christian Toro, 27, in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx Thursday morning.

Mayor Bill de Blasio also reassured citizens that there was "no imminent threat directed at New York City at this time". It was the culmination of an investigation launched after a 15-year-old called in a bomb threat at Democracy Prep High School, where Christian Toro taught, on December 4, police say.

After Christian Toro resigned, Tyler returned a school-issued laptop, and a technical specialist at the school found a digital copy of a bomb-making book on it, the feds allege.

After reviewing the laptop, BOE officials discovered a document including bomb-making instructions, prompting the FBI and the NYPD's Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) to join the NYPD's Intelligence and Detective bureaus in following additional leads, Miller continued.

Investigators said Christian Toro told them he had found the document while researching the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and never read it or had built a bomb, according to the complaint.

The notes included messages like "We are twin toros strike us now", "We will return with nano thermite," and "under the full moon the small ones will know terror".

Two men have been arrested in New York City in connection with a terrorism investigation involving in which bomb-making materials were recovered sources said

A search of the brothers' apartment on Thursday found potassium nitrate, black powder identified as an explosive material, metal spheres and other potential bomb components, according to the criminal complaint.

"That was something that developed as a result of the investigation of the bomb scare to the school", Miller said. The students said this occurred between October 2017 and January 2018.

It also said, "If you're registered as a sex offender, things will be hard".

Christian Toro was accused of another serious crime just days before Thursday's arrest. "But I am here 100%, living, buying weapons, whatever we need". Neighbors in the Bronx building where the two live said Tyler and Christian Toro are polite and keep to themselves.

News 12 knocked on the brothers' apartment door Thursday night but got no response.

"Neither of them was on our radar before this", he said. "They were college educated, they held the door for you whenever they saw you".

"This is a moment to remind all New Yorkers, to remind everyone, that the idea that if you see something, you say something is more pertinent than ever", de Blasio said. The two appeared before a federal judge in Lower Manhattan where they were arraigned on federal explosives-related charges.
