(Updated) family finds another explosive device at home of Elsmere man


The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s office has added charges after finding another explosive device at the home of an Elsmere man.

Family members cleaning out the home located in the 700 block of Baltimore Avenue discovered a suspicious device inside the house last week.

The New Castle County Police Department’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal team entered the home and defused the “pipe bomb.”

It is the fifth device recovered during this investigation which began on March 12 when a pipe bomb exploded in the front yard of an occupied home in the 1300 block of Cypress Avenue, Elsmere.

State fire investigators have charged Mark J. Consiglio with the possession, manufacturing, and use of an explosive device March 12.

He is currently being held at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institute in Wilmington on a $100,000 secured bond.

An explosion was reported last week in the 1300 block of Cypress Avenue, Elsmere. No one was injured in the blast in front of the home.

Consiglio, 48, was later taken into custody.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation were on the scene and assisted in the investigation.
