BRIDGEPORT - Court documents show the Bridgeport man charged with selling pipe bombs had made them before his arrest last week.

The documents reportedly show Nicholas Lahines, 31, confessed to selling them and admitted he had sold several similar bombs before.

Lahines was arrested Friday in the Bronx after police say he made eight explosive devices and sold them to an informant.

The Connecticut Post says Lahines bragged that his bombs were packed with ball bearings and could "harm anyone within 15 feet."

Investigators say they believe he was motivated by money, not terrorism.
