MAYS LANDING — A South Jersey man admitted that homemade bombs were found in his home after police searched it after reports of a drug overdose.

According to a statement from the US New Jersey Attorney’s Office, each device contains explosive powder and wick.

One contained metal fragments and the second contained five metal dart tips, the agency said in a statement.

Others had protruding metal screw hooks.

“Moser admitted that the four destructive devices were operational weapons,” the statement said.

Police had gone to Moser’s home to help him after he overdosed on drugs.

He pleaded guilty to possession of destructive devices at a hearing in Camden federal court on July 8.

U.S. District Judge Edward S. Kiel set November 13 for sentencing.
