Suspect Arrested In Pike County Bomb Case

Posted: Updated:
PIKE COUNTY - MCCOMB -

One man is facing felony charges for setting off a homemade bomb outside a McComb dollar store.   

Police tell us surveillance video led them to Kaylubglenn Lemieux.

The 18-year-old has been charged with illegally using explosives and use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Video captured Lemieux running away from the dollar general store on highway 51 in McComb last Thursday.

Investigators say a month ago a bomb exploded outside the Pike County little theater on state street in downtown.

Shirley Reeves works at a downtown McComb drug store near the pike county little theater, where someone set off an improvised explosive a month ago.

Two devices were also set off in Pike County.

In one case a mailbox was destroyed after someone placed a bomb inside it.

Authorities tell us the explosives were made from a household chemical.

Police are investigating whether Lemieux is connected to the other explosives.

If convicted in the dollar general case he could face up to life in prison.
