SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
Four teenagers aged 14 to 16 years old were arrested for placing an acid bomb outside a home in the Heathrow area of Seminole County Monday night.
Officials say the homeowner saw the four teens put a smoking plastic bottle outside his door on Cherry Lake Way around 9:30pm and then followed the suspects in his car until police could catch up to them in Orange County.
Investigators say the acid bomb did not go off but if it did the homeowner could have been burned.
Deputies say the teens we're taken to the Orange County Juvenile Detention center where they will face a judge Tuesday morning.
Deputies say at this point there is no clear motive why the teens chose this victim's home.
