October 25, 2011

PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) - A 23-year-old student at Vermont's Landmark College has been arrested in connection with the detonation of an explosive device on campus.

Putney police say Kevin Spitzner admitted to building and detonating the device using commonly found household items.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports Spitzner told police he placed the device on a ledge near his dormitory on Friday with the intention of scaring 1 of his dorm mates with whom he had been having a feud about loud music. The explosion was heard across campus.

Spitzner was cited for possession of a destructive device, a felony.
