FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - North Texas police thought they might have stumbled upon another Boston-style bomber.

A Fort Worth teenager who’d been pulled over had a pressure cooker and some odd ingredients with him.

It all started Friday, April 19, when a homeless man called authorities to report he had was stranded at a Wichita Falls intersection, after the man he had gotten a ride from ran out of gas.

When police responded they say the driver, 17-year-old Frank Reynolds from Fort Worth, was acting strangely and appeared to be high.  They searched his car and found K-2 and a pipe.

In his trunk, they found all the makings of a bomb: a pressure cooker, fertilizer, fireworks, electrical connectors and other items that could be components of an explosive device.
