Preston man given three and a half years after making explosive substance

Christopher Dooley, 40, of Slaidburn Road, Preston, was today sentenced at Preston Crown Court to three and a half years, under Section 4 of the Explosives Act – making and possessing an explosive, after pleading guilty to making an explosive substance.

In July 2013, Dooley made a nail bomb. He then left the home made device, capable of causing an explosion, in the front garden of a house in Moor Nook. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team were called to examine the device and ensure it was safe. No explosion occurred and no-one was injured.

Detective Sergeant Martin Pearson says: “The sentence reflects the seriousness of the offence. Clearly this was distressing for the victim, whose child found the device. Fortunately no one was hurt in the process.”
