Pennsylvania man allegedly used drone to drop explosives on ex-girlfriend's home

A Pennsylvania man has been accused of using a drone to drop explosive devices on his ex-girlfriend’s home.

Jason Muzzicato, 43, of Washington Township, was arrested back in June after he was linked to a series of nighttime explosions in March, The Morning Call reported.

Earlier this month, Muzzicato was slapped with even more charges related to the firearms and homemade bombs found at his home and his business, Bangor Motor Works, the news outlet reported.

During Muzzicato’s arraignment this week in federal court in Allentown, prosecutors revealed that Muzzicato allegedly used a drone to drop the explosive devices on the home of his ex-girlfriend, according to the report.

Muzzicato, who owns Bangor Motor Works, has been in jail since June.

Court records show that Muzzicato was involved in a dispute with an ex-girlfriend, with each granted a protection from abuse petition against the other in 2017. The woman told a Northampton County judge that Muzzicato did something to shatter her car window as she passed him on the road last December, an accusation that didn’t stick for lack of evidence.

Court records also said residents in the area complained that someone had been vandalizing vehicles and causing road hazards by dropping nails and fluids on Bangor-area streets. An examination of Muzzicato’s vehicle showed it had been modified with dashboard switches to operate devices that could release nails, ball bearings and fluids, including paint thinner, that could damage vehicles, court records said.
