ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) --  A Monroe County grand jury has indicted the four suspects charged in the alleged bomb plot against a Muslim community in New York.

Nineteen-year-old Vincent Vetromile, 20-year-old Brian Colaneri, 18-year-old Andrew Crysel, and 16-year-old Nicholas Pheilshifter are all facing felony charges including 'conspiracy as a crime of terrorism.' 


They were arrested by Greece Police last month.

Investigators say they found three explosive devices and multiple guns during the investigation. 

The FBI lab in Quantico issued an 11-page report on the three devices. Detectives say they found them at a home in Greece, where one of the four suspects lived. 

The report concludes the devices were capable of causing "property damage, personal injury and or death". 

Police say the suspects planned an attack against the small Muslim community of Islamberg near Binghamton.
