BELLINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Federal agents have raided the Rhode Island home of a science teacher in connection with a pipe bomb explosion outside the house of the principal at the Massachusetts high school where she works.

The MetroWest Daily News reports investigators seized cellphones and other evidence from the Woonsocket home of Susan Seery on Tuesday morning.

Seery has been on a paid administrative leave from Bellingham High School since Nov. 15, two days before the bomb exploded outside the home of principal Lucas Giguere and damaged a Jeep but didn't injure anyone.

The principal told investigators the explosion was powerful enough to shake his house.

The science teacher said Friday by telephone she has been advised by an attorney not to discuss the case.
