WHITE STRIPE Authorities from Westchester and the federal government detained two individuals on suspicion of using a homemade bomb and violent threats to end a tense business relationship.
The charges against Damjan Stanivukovic, 53, and Vladamir Radunovic, 47, both of New Jersey, were conspiracy to commit stalking and unauthorized possession of a destructive weapon.
According to the accusation, the guys sent a handmade decoy to a Mount Kisco area on January 11, 2024, and left it in the victim’s driveway, where it exploded.
The victim allegedly received a text message that day stating that it was his last warning, as part of a plot, according to the criminal complaint.
Owner of a contracting business Stanivukovic had a protracted disagreement with the victim.
Authorities found written instructions on how to construct explosives as well as multiple loaded weapons that matched those used to make the destructive device when they searched Stanivukovic’s home.
According to the criminal complaint, the males drove from Westchester through Rockland County and dropped off the device at the victim’s Mount Kisco residence, where it exploded.
At the location, police found a box containing Stanivukovic’s name and address, along with a two-gallon gasoline can, fireworks residue, and firecracker tubing.
Each defendant faces a term of 10 to 15 years in jail if found guilty.
