Evanston police are warning residents to be on alert after finding two bottles filled with a potentially explosive mixture outside two homes on the city's northwest side.

The two bottles were initially found on Thursday by residents in the 2700 block and 2800 block of Lincoln Street, said Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott. The bottles contained a mixture of aluminum foil and a liquid containing ammonia that, when agitated, sparks a chemical reaction that could cause the bottle to explode, Parrott said.

"If somebody is holding it or nearby, it can cause some severe injury," Parrott said.

Dumb, Under kitchen sink chemistry.

Dumber Police officers.

My 88 year old father told me about when he made nitro glycerin in his high school chemistry class.

It was a small amount, but it worked.

This is probably what these “bombs” were supposed to be...

If the liquid was ordinary household ammonia, they wouldn’t work.

This combination is only slightly more explosive than me after consuming kimchi and beer.
