A fourteen year-old Georgia boy has charged with housing and manufacturing explosive devices after police were tipped off by a series of instructional videos and helpful hints uploaded to YouTube:

The unidentified boy was arrested last Monday in Canton, Ga., after police found “several devices that appear to be pipe bombs inside [his parents'] residence,” according to assistant police chief Todd Vande Zande. He is believed to be the individual behind YouTube channel Blake6841.

Despite having only five subscribers, the account has received attention for posting since-deleted videos detailing how to make pipe bombs and leaving tutorials and advice in the comment sections of like-minded videos.
