Ga. woman pleads guilty to home bomb-making

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia woman who said she knew it was wrong to make explosive devices but did it anyway because it was her passion pleaded guilty Tuesday to making and possessing two pipe bombs.

Celia Savage, 24, entered her plea in federal court after reaching an agreement with prosecutors. She will be sentenced at a later date.

Federal agents raided Savage’s home in May 2012. Court documents show they found two pipe bombs and a number of guns, as well as illegal drug paraphernalia and suspected drugs.

When agents asked her what there is to do in the part of north Georgia where she lives, she replied, “Blow things up.” She told them it was a hobby, and later told the judge she had no intention of harming anyone.
