BREAKING UPDATE: Police ID owner of guns, powder, fuses on Exchange St.


LAWRENCE — Police have identified the man who owned the guns and other items at the heart of the bomb scare today as Daniel Stadleman, age 40. He died in May of a heart attack, according to police.

Earlier this morning, police were called to Stadleman's home at 200 Exchange St. in Lawrence, a three-family tenement near the Methuen line, to remove guns from the home at the behest of his mother.

Police say they found the guns as well as a crossbow and what they believed to be a pipe bomb and other bomb making material. Police called in a Hazmat team and Massachusetts State Police bomb squad, evacuated residents and blocked off the area.

After a search of the home, officers removed two rifles, a crossbow and a pellet gun. The suspected pipe bombs were empty pieces of steel pipe and a nunchuck handle. Police also found powder and fuses used in bomb making.

After the scene was cleared, Methuen police searched a storage unit belonging to the deceased male who authorities believe owned the material. They found no further weapons or sign of bomb making material. Police say Stadleman was not known to them before this incident.
