London, Jan 7 (ANI): A jilted man in the US has been arrested after he allegedly made an exploding sex toy to give to his ex-girlfriend as a Christmas gift.
According to the police, Terry Allen Lester, 37, from Waseca, Minnesota, planned to hand the device to one of three ex-girlfriends after the relationship ended on a sour note, the Daily Mail reported.
The matter came to light when on New Year's Day police officer Kari Kalow responded to a call about a civil matter and went to a residence in Waseca.
The woman, who had made the call, said Lester had been residing with her and another woman at her apartment - but he was forced to leave hastily when the manager learned about him staying.
He was evicted from the apartment on New Year's Eve, but he left behind some bags - and he had told one of the women what was in the luggage.
Feeling uncomfortable with the contents of the bags, they contacted the police, who found one of the bags contained a container with the words 'Christmas Gifts' written in black marker, and inside were some sex toys.
Lester had allegedly put gun powder, BB shot and buck shot from shotgun shells into one with black and red wires that connected to a trigger with a battery port, though there were no batteries inside.
Also left at the apartment were tools used in the construction of the explosive device, including cords, cables, a small tool kit and two other sex toys.
Lester has been charged with felony creation, possession of an explosive or incendiary device and felony terrorist threats, and faces a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment and a 13,000 pounds fine if convicted. (ANI)
