POLICE have praised the mother of a teen who she caught with homemade explosives and books on Nazism in his bedroom.

Jack Coleman was arrested on March 14 this year after his mother found ‘explosive substances’ in his High Wycombe bedroom, including an IED.

After she informed police about what she found, Amersham Hill was closed off by police to the public for several hours, including access to High Wycombe Railway Station.

Coleman, who was 18 years old at the time of the offence, pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court to one count of possession of an explosive substance for an unlawful purpose.

At a sentencing hearing at Luton Crown Court on Wednesday (November 22), Judge Geoffrey Payne handed Coleman, now 20 years old, a Section 37 and Section 41 hospital order under the Mental Health Act 1983 due to his recent diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia and autism.

Thames Valley Police have since praised his mother for reporting the homemade explosives which saw the force attend the address along with the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD).

Investigating officer, Detective Constable William Blundell, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “I’m satisfied that Jack Coleman pleaded guilty to the offence of possessing an explosive substance for unlawful purpose and he has been sentenced accordingly, so he can get the support that he needs.

“Thames Valley Police acted on information from the public that Coleman may have explosive substances in a property in Amersham Hill, from which we took swift action.

“This case demonstrates how the public can support the police by being our additional eyes and ears in the community and shows that Thames Valley Police will take appropriate action.

“You can report any concerns or suspicions you have to the force via our website, by visiting a police station, calling 101, or in an emergency 999.

“This incident caused significant disruption as emergency services and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit worked to safely avert the danger to the public and the surrounding area.

“While we were responding to the incident, members of the public had to be evacuated from their residences, and numerous others were affected by the temporary closure of High Wycombe train station and Amersham Hill.

“The subsequent investigation found that the explosives had the potential to cause injury and damage to property.

"I am grateful to those that helped to prevent this by alerting the police, and to the public for their co-operation and patience with this matter.”

Coleman will now be returned to the hospital for ongoing treatment until the Secretary of State agrees to release him following a tribunal.
