Newstalk ZB reports

Two Auckland men have been arrested after police found equipment used to make pipe bombs in their house.

Police believe the bomb-making materials found at the Massey home, were stolen from the military.

The New Zealand Herald reports they also found cannabis and equipment used to cultivate the drug.

Michael Logue was working at the Takapuna branch of New Zealand Post when he was arrested this week, and is facing charges under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The man he owns the house with, Martin Moodie, was also arrested and both are due in Waitakere District Court next week.

Material stolen from the military?

Will be interesting to see how that unfolds.

    The army using pipe bombs, made with old kitchen timers?

      Yeah, the NZ military has real lifted it’s game recently.

    I would have thought they could have given their bomb a more Kiwi flavour, a multikai cooker would have to be a step up from an ordinary old pressure cooker.
