A New Hampshire man was arrested Sunday after he reportedly planted three live pipe bombs under his neighbor's porch, police say.

The incident happened in Laconia, where a doorbell surveillance camera captured video of Tirar Tortorello sneak up to the house and place a "suspicious" package under the porch, according to Laconia Police Chief Matt Canfield. Thinking his home was being used as a pickup location for illegal drugs, the homeowner called police, who discovered the package contained three pipe bombs, Canfield says. "The device was transported off site to a safe location, where it was detonated and, indeed, identified as explosive and potentially dangerous," he says.

Investigators believe Tortorello planted the bombs because of some sort of dispute he was having with his neighbor, Canfield says.
