LEE COUNTY- A Fort Myers man has been arrested for his alleged involvement in bombing a Gateway home last week.
Philip Suenkel, 19, of Fort Myers has been charged with one count of Possessing, Placing or discharging any Destructive Device.
A resident from a Waterford Village Drive home reported to the Lee County Sheriff's Office that at approximately 12:09 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, she heard a sound that resembled a gunshot come from the rear of her residence.
Deputies met with another resident of Waterford Village Drive who told them that he possibly knew who had placed and detonated the device. The resident named Philip Suenkel and another unidentified person as possible suspects. The resident said he believed the incident occurred over an ongoing feud between him and Suenkel.
Deputies found debris, PVC pipe, electrical wires and a PVC blasting cap at the scene.
Detectives served a search warrant at Suenkel's home on Williamson Road in Fort Myers. They found numerous items linking Suenkel to the crime.
As of Tuesday morning, Suenkel, a German national, is still in custody at the Lee County Jail.
