Four teens charged in Bainbridge toilet explosions

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Kitsap County prosecutors have charged four Bainbridge Island teenagers who are suspected of blowing up portable toilets around the island in June.

The 16-year-old boys will be arraigned in Kitsap County Juvenile Court on July 15 on charges of second-degree malicious mischief. If convicted, they could face time in juvenile detention.

Six suspects were identified by Bainbridge Island police in late June, but only four were charged on Thursday.

Police say so-called "sparkler bombs," made of fireworks sparklers and duct tape, were used to destroy a number of portable toilets, although charging documents only specify two toilets.

Bainbridge Island is in Puget Sound six miles west of Seattle, and is a main ferry connection across the sound.
