DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) – A man has pleaded guilty to charges in a series of mysterious explosions the past three months in suburban Philadelphia.

Thirty-year-old David Surman Jr. pleaded guilty in Bucks County Court on Monday to conspiracy to possess and possession of weapons of mass destruction, criminal use of a communication facility and unlawful use of a computer for possessing child pornography.
