Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested and accused Wednesday of removing a backpack containing hollowed-out fireworks from Tsarnaev's dorm room three days after the attack.
The two Kazakhs were accused of removing a laptop computer and a backpack containing empty fireworks from Tsarnaev’s dorm room and throwing them in a dumpster after learning of his suspected involvement in the bombing. Phillipos was charged with lying to federal investigators.
Shortly after being alerted to Tsarnaev’s resemblance to one of the suspects on April 18, Kadyrbayev, Tazhayakov and Phillipos went to Tsarnaev’s dorm room. Just before entering, Kadyrbayev showed Tazhayakov a text message from Tsarnaev — “I’m about to leave if you need something in my room take it.” Tazhayakov told the FBI he believed he would never see Tsarnaev alive again.

Am I the only one who noticed that they were using gunpowder from fireworks?
That's not that hightech, I could probably fill a pipe and stick it in a pressure cooker without resorting to using the internet, wonder what the electrics were like.

Some things still sound a bit strange though. Why on April 18, several days after the bombing, were Tsarnaev's friends still able to enter his dorm room and beat the authorities there to remove evidence? That seems strange. It doesn't appear they were just waiting and staking out the room in order to catch possible co-conspirators. Why the wait? Poor police work?
