Court documents reveal that three George Mason University students were arrested last week after police found bomb-making materials in their dorm room during a raid, reports Red Alert Politics.
One of the students was charged for possession of the bomb-making materials, while the other two were arrested on alcohol and drug-related charges.
The documents say GMU police officers went to the room last Wednesday night after it was reported that flames were shooting out of the window.
AP reports that “police found a leafy green substance, match books, shaved match heads, a mortar and pedestal, lighter fluid, hand sanitizer candles and a PVC pipe.”
The students have not yet been publicly identified by police.
The economics department at GMU is heavily funded by the Koch brothers. Among the Koch-connected professors in the department are the far from radical Tyler Cowen and Peter Boettke.
The bomb squad told campus police the materials were likely being used to make explosives, potentially fire bombs.
