The north Georgia college student who says she’s like to blow up toilets in the woods for fun is now in real serious trouble.
Celia Alchemy Savage was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury that accused her of making pipe bombs.
Savage, 23, is charged with three counts of making and possessing explosive devices and possessing firearms while unlawfully using controlled substances, U.S. Attorney Sally Quillan Yates said.
Law enforcement agencies raided Savage’s home May 30 and found pipe bombs, firearms and suspected illegal drugs.
Savage allegedly told the FBI that her hobby is blowing up toilets in the woods. To do that, she made five to seven pipe bombs.
"Manufacturing explosive devices and detonating them for recreation was her hobby," according to an ATF report.
Savage told federal agents that she had made between five and seven pipe bombs of various sizes and a "cherry bomb," which she described as a tennis ball containing gun powder, according to the statement from a Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent. She told the agents she knew it was wrong or against the law to make the devices, but said it was her hobby and she is passionate about it, according to the statement.
One of those toilet-exploding expeditions made its way to YouTube, her father admits.
"She likes to hunt and fish," Tommy Savage told Channel 2 Action News about his daughter. "She loves shooting. She goes sky diving. All kinds of stuff like that that you wouldn't really typically think of a young lady doing."
Ms. Savage studies auto mechanics at North Georgia Technical College in Clarkesville.
Her public Facebook profile show several pictures of Savage with her fire arms. Plus number statements about her distaste for the people that have charged her.
"I despise all law enforcement and any governing authority," her Facebook profile states. "I am not one for selective targeting but mass destruction."
But Mr. Savage says this is none of the government’s business. Just a little country girl having fun in the woods.
"The government, don't have a whole lot of use for," Savage said. "I think everybody ought to be able to stay on their property, do whatever the heck they want to."
Mr. Savage says his daughter is not a terrorist, militia member, or a drug user. He’s not a big fan of some her friends, though.
Savage is charged with possession of an unregistered destructive device and possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of a controlled substance, according to the warrant obtained against her.
Savage's court-appointed lawyer Jake Waldrop did not immediately return a phone call.
on her facebook page instead of this one.
This story reads like a manual on how to end up in jail. She posted all that anti-government stuff on-line, and worst of all SHE TALKED TO THE POLICE!NEVER ever talk to the police. Especially if they think you've done something.
And she can blow me up in the woods anytime!
Would you hit it?
No wonder she wound up making chemical bombs.
Alchemy? Savage? Really?
I could give her moral support ;-) ,,,,, BTW/not guilty
Absent any of the above, this is nothing more than tyranny.
And no... I'm not engaging in hyperbole. We've put up with crap for far too long.
Agreed. Believe what you will, but keep it to yourself and associate only with those who hold your beliefs dear. She got sucked in by being dumb enough to believe in free speech and innocence before guilt proven. Sad.
She’s a cute girl, and likely a lot of fun.
As you say, she’s put herself in a bad spot with the ATF.
I'd shudder to think what this jury would have done to Keith Moon.
I just knew that I had heard sounds of explosions coming from the bathroom!
Would you hit it?

Oh, it wouldn’t take to much convincing.
BTW I absolutley see nothing wrong with blowing up toilets in the woods?
At least as long as I am not in one of them.
However, in the woods aren’t most toilets behind a tree or something along that line (dependent what your business is)
I really haven’t seen to many “Johnny On-The-Spot” units in the deep woods.
Or maybe they are domesticating the bears and getting them to use toilets rather than do what wild bears do in the woods?
You're preaching to the choir my FRiend. I agree. All of this BS is prior restraint. Will Rogers once said "Your right to swing your fist ends at my nose." Well it seem to me she was swinging her fist in the woods doing no harm to anyone.
In the lated 1940`s late I used to go with my grandfather to the local hardware store. He would buy a couple sticks of dynamite, take us kids into the woods and make us stand back hundred feet or so while he lit the fuse and blew tree stumps into the air. The govt paranoids are trying to go after circus clowns with firecrackers now.
So, what’s that blister on her lip?
Celia Alchemy Savage? That’s her REAL Name? You can’t make this stuff up.
Worth a look! at petercoopers link.
It’s a crime to blow up commodes out in the woods. And it’s not a crime to smuggle weapons to Mexican drug cartels. The law is based on who donates to Obama’s campaign.
I’m not real old yet, but past middle age. I do hope I see the day when American Patriots have HAD ENOUGH.
I'm GUESSING an infectious viral disease.
I can recall my Father also blowing up tree stumps during the late 40s. Daddy would not let us any where near it tho. In fact we were so far away, we could see the explosion then a moment later hear it.
Daddy was in the Combat Engineers so probably learned to use explosives during the war.
Don’t know about blowing things up be she has two hostile projectiles!
Post Mexican food night.
Pipe bombs, firearms and drugs...perfect together! < /sarc >
Further evidence of her lack of guilt (although I would hesitate to consider it evidence of innocence). She would probably violate the rule about "never screw anyone crazier than you are." for most of us.
Well, she seems to like stripes.
Not guilty, but not very smart either.
My guess is that they[Feds, State, etal] were using her as bait to see if she could attract some "milita" types. No one bit so they just decided to take her so it would not be a total loss. Or this is the way they closed the "operation". Time will tell. Keep an eye on what becomes of her.
I can’t wait for the “Free Alchemy Savage” website.
This girl has way too many problems not to be a popular and productive member of society.
From the sound of this, Jury nullification might be her best hope. She sure doesn’t look like she will get adopted by the New Black Panthers any time soon.
They probably are upset because they were low-flow toilets.
I'm there. Just waiting on the rest of you.
All American Girl gets arrested - but yet the federal govt is allowing thousand of Moslem immigrants to flow into the US - allowing funding by Saudi Arabia to build more madrassas and mosques with anti-US goals and jihad - and cut our national military strength to pander to world view...so who’s the threat again???
If you like to blow stuff up posting your hobby on facebook is probably NOT the smartest thing to do. Back when M-80s were real, who among us hasn't blown up the occasional tin can, etc. But worse, she has confessed to a crime. It may be a phoney baloney crime, but the jail time won't be phoney.
This youtube video should be mandatory watching for anyone concerned about freedom.
Why did the Government chose not to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation? Because they can.
why did not the Government prosecute the Black Panthers for putting a bounty for the killikg of George Zimmerman? Becuse they could.
My FRiend, this Government is not the same as it was. It changed very drastically November 4, 2008.
See the link in post #36
She should have spent time on FR instead of FB.
...oh the METH charge...she has all of her teeth...I don’t know if she used that - or was set-up...???
not the only thing about her that has apparently been blown up
Nevertheless, not guilty on all charges. She could pass for not guilty on looks alone, but goes over the top with general friskiness.
I thought it was going to be a story about a girl planning to do something terrible, and I clicked because it’s unusual for a girl to do that kind of crime, but then I read further and thought, oh my God, they’re railroading her. Not because they have probably cause to think she plans to hurt anyone, but because she has the ability if she ever DID decide to hurt someone.
This girl needs to channel Bill Ayers real quick. If she can convince them that she is a real violent threat to conservative America they may even give her the Medal of Freedom or at least a job approving our kid’s text books.
As you probably already know the Feds are targeting Habersham County. They arrested those poor old geezers (the geriatric jihad) at the Waffle House up off 441 in Alto because they were sitting around talking smack about the govt. They are still sitting in jail. There is a tremendous amount of tension in the N GA mountains between the folks and law enforcement. The Feds are trying to terrorize that area and all that is happening is people are getting more and more p#%%@# off. Now they have arrested this poor 23 year old girl. Its ridiculous but this is what a police state brings.
It was changing well before that. This is just a culmination of a long fall...
That's one way to deal with problem bears. Take away their facilities!
Yeah, where is she getting all the toilets, anyway?
Anyone the Feds can demonize, any way they can be demonized, even if it's illegal for them to do so... As long as the objective makes splashy headlines to push an agenda.
I suspect the drug charges were in the stardard prosecutorial tactic of piling as many charges on as you can invent to make sure at least one of them sticks. I can tell you if i were on the jury (which since I’m not in that county I won’t be) I’d find her not guilty and not by reason of her looks, but rather because of 2nd amendment issues. Explosive ordinance - even homemade - fits the definition of arms. Now as to whether or not she’s cute, but not the sharpest knife in the drawer is another matter altogether.
Either herpes or from meth...either way do not want.jpeg
