A man in Abington used homemade bombs to blow up snowbanks to avoid having to shovel. The Massachusetts State police bomb squad responded and found Leo Powers, 23, to be in possession of powder which was tested and confirmed to be some type of explosive chemical. Powers is charged with threats to commit a crime and possession of an incendiary device.
Powers has a firearm license which Abington police chief David Majenski immediately suspended. He was ordered to surrender all his weapons to the police which were a shotgun and pistol.
