In response to the allegations, Oxenreider explained he was trying to prevent the earths destruction by an alien race, per a Pennsylvania State Police affidavit.
How the bomb was discovered
Shortly before 9 a.m. on Sunday, Oxenreider contacted Bahney House manager Charles Kline by telephone and informed him he built an explosive device in his apartment, according the police report.
Kline instructed Oxenreider to place the device next to a dumpster outside and called police.
Oxenreider was taken into custody without incident. The device was rendered safe by authorities, and no secondary devices were located inside the building after a search.

(Photo: Submitted -- Christopher Boger) In an interview with police, Oxenreider stated he had been attempting to alert authorities to a larger problem he was experiencing but was not taken seriously.
He claimed he wasnt trying to hurt anybody and only built the bomb so police would have to speak to him about his encounter with aliens.
The defendant related back in 2014 he had an encounter with a UFO ship and aliens, the affidavit reads. The defendant related the aliens told him that humans need to start being good people or else they were going to destroy the earth with a nuclear laser beam. The defendant related he has been trying to spread the advice the aliens had gave him, but no one listens to him. The defendant related when he tells people about his alien encounter people say he is crazy.
A search of Oxenreiders home found materials similar to those used to make the explosive device that was found, per the report

Your Email The Bahney House right in the center of the downtown Myerstown was evacuated and the surrounding area closed down for about six hours while police investigated and disarmed the device. However, its unclear how much danger the threat posed to residents or pedestrians.
The bomb needed to be hand-detonated or could have exploded if left out in the sun, according to Oxenreider, who contacted the building manager and stressed he didnt want anybody to get hurt.
Oxenreider told police he just wanted their attention to tell them something bigger was coming.

Charlie Sheen had the same problem in 1996’s “The Arrival”.
This guy could just be a hero.......or something......
Lunatic or hero ping?
[or else they were going to destroy the earth with a nuclear laser beam]
Aliens ALWAYS have a death-beam of some sort. And shiny space suits.
An harmonica will usually do the trick, though.
“Oh, WHERE is it!”
I’m tellin’ ya, that Global Warming is all a dastardly plan by aliens to get rid of humans!!!!
Ill go with lunatic.
Dad-blame alien fellers!
And they look like us!
Until their legs bend backwards and they jump up to the top of walls.
So he ended up being more dangerous than the aliens with nuclear laser beams.
Eh? Spring-heeled Jack was an alien?
This new alien meme is a last tactic of a global elite Marxist network. The disclosure model has been on the shelf for decades.
If we let them get off on global child trafficking, they will tell us about the aliens.
What they won’t disclose... We are the alien here, and those within are somewhat disturbed as we created a structure that requires physical slaughter of form the spirit will inhabit.
Deep stuff, been going on for a long time.
None of us belong here, and we know it.
This was Lebanon, PA.
What is the alien’s definition of “good people”?
Bump for later.
Keep the harmonica on ya in case Slim Whitman isn’t handy.
Old Slim isn’t needed. Yodeling must be fairly easy to learn. Even a child can do it:
