DOVER, N.H. (WBZ) ― Two men have been arrested for a prank that turned into a bomb scare in New Hampshire.
Part of downtown Dover was shut down for five hours August 9 when a pipe bomb was found in a car parked at a bank on Central Ave.
Investigators say the device, which was placed in the car's glove box, turned out to be a fake.
Officers later determined that owner of the car was the victim of a prank.
Thomas Page, 49, of Newington, and Richard Twombly, 41, East Wakefield, turned themselves in to police Thursday. Both are co-workers of the victim.
Both are charged with placement of simulated explosives, a felony, and disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.
They were arraigned in Dover District Court Thursday and released on $50,000 personal recognizance bail.
