WILSONVILLE, OR (KPTV) -

Three teens have been arrested and accused of leaving "bottle bombs" at Wilsonville's Memorial Park throughout the last week.

The city said at least one of the bombs, also known as "Drano bombs," exploded. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Wilsonville police used tips and evidence from the scene to track down three 15-year-old boys as suspects. Investigators said the boys each admitted to taking part in the incidents.

The bottle bombs did cause damage, and if the total exceeds $1,000, the teens could face charges of criminal mischief, which is a felony punishable by five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

However, the exact charges are still pending while the dollar amount of damage is calculated.
