WASHINGTON – According to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue, an arrest has been made in the pipe bomb explosion at a home in Potomac, Md.
The explosion occurred at the 9200 block of Inglewood Drive on March 16 at 9:15 p.m.
Investigators located an explosive device that detonated in front of the residence resulting in damage to windows and the interior of the house.
There were no injuries and no one was home at the time of the blast.
Security cameras attached to the house captured the explosion.
Initial damage of the home was estimated at $25,000.
Authorities did find a necklace with Hebrew letters that spelled out “Jennifer” at the scene of the explosion.
Investigators believed that this unique necklace may be related to the crime and they sought the public’s help for more information about the necklace.
Online property records indicate this multi-million dollar home is owned by a couple in their 60s.
A neighbor told FOX 5 that the couple are Iranian nationals who are permanent residents of the United States.
The couple left for Iran several weeks before the explosion for the engagement of one of their two daughters.
