After serving Powers with an emergency restraining order at
a rooming house he was staying in on Washington Street in Abington, police
learned Powers had a box of ammunition and a box with ?some sort of powder?
in it at his former address, according to Majenski.
According to Majenski, police were told Powers had devised a way to use the
materials to blow up snow banks instead of shoveling the snow and had been
doing it for some time.
Majenski said when police and fire officials arrived at the house, the
discovered a container filled with ?military-grade ammunition and other
stuff, including powders of some sort.?
The Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad was called in and the power was
sent to a lab for testing.
?The results came back Saturday morning that the powder was indeed an
explosive material,? Majenski said.
