NM police allege father taught boy to make bombs

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Las Cruces police allege a father taught his 6-year-old son how to build explosives, and threatened to kill the child's mother.

Authorities arrested 44-year-old Anthony Stromberg on Thursday on one count of child abuse.

Las Cruces detectives allege Stromberg gave his son detailed lessons on how to build explosives.

They say the boy went to the desert several times with his father to blow up explosives.

Detectives allege Stromberg told the boy he was going to kidnap the child's mother and shoot her.

Authorities say the boy confided in an adult, who alerted police.

The parents do not live together but share custody of the boy.

Stromberg was jailed in Las Cruces under $150,000 bond.
