The police managed to prevent an explosion at a house in Alkmaar on the night of Friday to Saturday. Two men aged 18 and 66 from Amsterdam were arrested, formally for attempted arson.

There have been cameras at a house on Lekstraat in Alkmaar for some time now, because the house has been the target of an attack before. The Lekstraat is part of the safety risk area following a series of explosions in Alkmaar.

At around 1 a.m., the police encountered a suspicious situation in Lekstraat in which a person, after being dropped off by a motorist on Lekstraat, was suspiciously in the street where an explosion had previously occurred. When he saw officers, the man threw goods into the bushes.

The man was stopped. After a short search in the bushes, an explosive of the Cobra 6 type was found. The 18-year-old man has been arrested. The 66-year-old motorist was also arrested.

On Wednesday, the mayor of Alkmaar designated four different areas as safety risk areas with (extra) camera surveillance. The police can also conduct preventive searches.
