Pipe Bombs And Tamerlan's Wallet Examined In Tsarnaev Trial

Today, the jury heard from Robert McCarthy, a police officer who collected two pipe bombs from Watertown, state trooper Matthew Hess, and state trooper Patrick Moynihan, a fingerprint expert.

Hess collected the ballistics on the SUV the Tsarnaev brothers hijacked and drove to Watertown. Moynihan testified that receipts found within Tamerlan's wallet showed he bought possible equipment for the bombing in the days leading up to the marathon, including two backpacks from Target the day before.
