A deputy then found what he thought were explosives in the 2000 Toyota Camry and called the bomb squad. Technicians confirmed the devices were pipe bombs and destroyed them, according to sworn statements in the arrest warrants.
Megahed and Mohamed, both USF students, were arrested Aug. 4, when authorities stopped the men for speeding and the material found in their car was detonated.
They were driving through Goose Creek, S.C., to vacation at a North Carolina beach, their attorney has said.
No federal charges have been filed but investigators are still looking into the case, said Berkeley County Chief Deputy Butch Henerey.

I have yet to see anything on the network news outlets about this.
Was it stated ANYWHERE that these were Muslim men?

Youssef Megahed and Ahmed Mohamed were charged last week after police said they found pipe bombs in their car during a traffic stop in South Carolina.
On Friday, Megahed's parents met with their son in jail. They brought him a prayer rug and a copy of the Islamic holy book, the Quran.

this is a friggin witch hunt man... the home owners kid said it was for sprinkler repairs.
12402 Pampas Place just happens to be the address of a home that had been rented previously to WISE (World and Islam Studies Enterprise), one of two groups founded by convicted jihad supporter Sami Al-Arian, who was a professor at University of South Florida–the same university that Megahed and Mohamed attend.
One of the names tied to the address is FBI Most Wanted terrorist Ramadan Shallah.
Records show the owner of that house is Sameeh Hammoudeh, a co-defendant in the trial of Sami Al-Arian. Al-Arian is the former USF professor who was acquitted on most charges of funding terror-related organizations. He pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to provide services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Investigators searched a car Saturday that records showed is registered to Noor Salhab’s son, Ghassan Salhab. Neighbors say he and two other men are the current residents of the house that was raided.
