EASTPOINTE, Mich. – An Eastpointe man built a homemade bomb to try to kill rats at his home, but instead, he damaged two houses and got arrested, police said. Eastpointe police were called around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday to a home in the 16800 block of Veronica Avenue. Investigators said a homeowner found what he believed was a better way to kill rats than using poison.
