London Police need your help to identify a man they suspect of making a homemade bomb using a soda bottle.

Using receipts from Walmart to figure out what time the man entered and exited the store, police say they know who is responsible for making a chemical bomb that contained nails.

The bomb was found under a pickup truck that was on fire. Police were in the area of the Laurel Trailer Park when they were flagged down by someone claiming their truck was on fire. After putting out the fire police found a Mountain Dew bottle bomb, saying the cold temperatures helped keep it from exploding.

The next night police were called to Walmart for a person claiming their tires were slashed. Police compared surveillance video from both crimes and determined the two were related. They also say both victims know each other giving them more reason to believe the crimes are connected.

Anyone with information is asked to call the London Police Department at (606) 878-7004.
