A REJECTED lover is today behind bars after he was caught using a drone to drop explosives near his ex-girlfriend’s home.
Jason Muzzicato, 45, was arrested by cops investigating a series of small explosions that had rattled a neighborhood in eastern Pennsylvania for more than a year.
Prosecutors said Muzzicato — who was subject to a domestic violence protective order — launched a drone bombing campaign aimed at his ex.
The police and the FBI who were probing the explosions tracked him down and raided his Washington Township home.
Here they discovered a cache of guns and ammunition — and the Model Phantom 3 drone which was used in the attacks.
First Assistant U.S. Attorney Williams said: "With this combination of homemade bombs, guns and a drone, this defendant terrorized an entire community.
"His blatant disregard for court orders, the law and others’ personal safety made him a true threat, and we are grateful to our law enforcement partners that Muzzicato was identified and arrested before anyone was physically hurt.
"Our Office will continue to work with our partners to ensure the security of our communities is not threatened by people who hide behind a remote control."

Muzzicato was jailed for five years after pleading guilty to possession of a destructive device, possession of firearms by a person subject to a domestic violence protective order — and knowingly operating an unregistered aircraft.
The charges stem from his possession of homemade bombs and firearms while subject to the terms of a Protection from Abuse order issued by the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas on behalf of hiss former girlfriend.
