Two Vallejo students had pipe bomb parts
VALLEJO, Calif. -- Two Vallejo university students have been arrested on suspicion of possessing explosives material.
Vallejo police say 29-year-old Esteban Ugarte and 32-year-old Nicholas Salazar, students at the California Maritime Academy, were taken into custody over the weekend after police received reports of two people firing high-powered rifles at trash cans in their backyard.
Lt. Lee Horton tells the Vallejo Times-Herald that officers who responded found eight firearms and components for making pipe bombs. He says the pipe bomb parts were not assembled, but were individually wrapped to make it easy to assemble them later.
Ugarte and Salazar were also arrested on suspicion of reckless discharge of a firearm and possession of an assault weapon.
