Man Charged With Rigging Bomb in Sex Toy
WASECA, Minnesota (WCCO) — A Waseca man is accused of planting an explosive device inside a sex toy intended for one of his ex-girlfriends.
According to the criminal complaint, 37-year-old Terry Allen Lester has been charged with felony counts of creating an explosive device and making terroristic threats.
The incident was reported on New Year’s Day. Authorities said Lester had been staying with the apparent intended victim and another woman.
He had been forced to leave the apartment by the landlord but left behind bags, one of which contained a container marked “Christmas Gifts.”
Lester allegedly mentioned to one of the two roommates his intentions, so they reported their suspicions about the bags to police.
The criminal complaint says police found a sex toy inside the package that had been modified with gun powder and buck shot, which were connected to a trigger inside the battery port.
Authorities believe Lester planned on giving the sex toy to one of three women he had previously been involved with. Materials were found suggesting he intended to make two other similar devices.
Lester has been taken into custody and faces up to 10 years in jail if convicted
