Electrician finds device rigged to explode in house

Posted: Updated:

Milton, Mass. (KWWL) -  A house wired to explode with the flip of a switch: It sounds hard to believe, but police say it happened.

A homeowner in Massachusetts, who's had renters living in the home, was about to put the house on the market. An electrician came over for an inspection and that's when he found the device.

He spotted some strange looking wires and knew something wasn't right. Authorities say the device was plastered behind the wall of a bedroom closet.

A bomb squad removed and disarmed it.
