Accused bomber faces additional child pornography charge

MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Pa., - Pennsylvania State Police have filed an additional criminal charge against the Milford Township man at the center of an ongoing investigation into a series of explosions in Upper Bucks County, accusing him in a new case of possessing pornographic images of children.

David W. Surman Jr., 30, of the 2400 block of North Old Bethlehem Pike surrendered himself to authorities Wednesday afternoon and was arraigned by video on one count of possessing child pornography.

Magisterial District Judge Regina Armitage set Surman's bail at 10 percent of $500,000.

Back in June, police arrested Surman Jr. after searching his home on Old Bethlehem Pike in Milford Township and his business, Consolidated Chemicals and Solvents on Spinnerstown Road, and finding multiple explosive devices, including an 18-inch device with four fuses that was ready to be detonated.

Surman Jr. was facing charges of possessing a weapon of mass destruction, reckless endangerment, and other offenses in the summer.
