SACRAMENTO, Calif. — An Elk Grove man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of having explosive devices.
According to a news release, 61-year-old Robert Ziganto was arrested for charges including possessing and manufacturing an explosive device. He was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail.
The Sacramento Police Department is still investigating several explosions in South Sacramento which damaged property. Police say they happened within the past several months.
"We've had some Porta Potties that have been blown up and then some garbage cans," said Sacramento Police Department spokesperson Officer Zach Eaton. "But it's something that we're obviously very concerned about. It's not normal to have explosions in a community, albeit they are smaller."
News of the explosions has some South Sacramento residents concerned.
"That's very dangerous," said Sacramento resident Andre Flowers. "You could hurt a child. You can hurt an older person. You can hurt anyone."
Sacramento police say no one was hurt and no homes were blown up, but there was some property damage.
Police said Ziganto is a person of interest.
He was arrested Tuesday at his home in Elk Grove where police say they found some small incendiary devices and chemicals used to make them.
"As it relates to the explosions, that's something that is still under investigation," said Eaton.
Sacramento police said they will review evidence to determine whether Ziganto is a suspect or not. But still, much is unknown about the explosions themselves, including how many explosions happened, when they happened and where they happened. ABC10 brought those questions to Sacramento police, but they told us they could not say since it is an ongoing investigation.
Ziganto faces felony charges related to possessing and manufacturing an explosive device. He was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail and is set to appear in court Thursday afternoon.
Anyone with information about explosions can call the dispatch center at (916) 808-5471.
