Police: Man who left hoax device at Trussville school wanted to shoot police, rob a bank

Authorities say a man who left a suspicious device designed to look like a bomb at a Trussville elementary school confessed he wanted to use it as a decoy to shoot police officers and rob a bank. 

On Wednesday, Trussville police announced the arrest of two people in connection to the explosive device found at Magnolia Elementary School in Trussville on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Zachary Edwards, 35, and Raphel Dilligard, 34, are both charged with possession of a hoax destructive device, rendering false alarm and terrorist threats, Captain Jeff Bridges said. Both suspects are from Birmingham.

Edwards has a $600,000 bond and has been transported to the Jefferson County Jail.

Dilligard has a $10,000 bond and is still being held at the Trussville City Jail, but will likely be transported to the Jefferson County Jail later on Wednesday.
