SuspectsPlead Not 
Guiltyin PipeBombing

By Dean Lee

 Two men arrested last 
week, during an intense 
investigation, pleaded 
not guilty Wednesday in 
connecting with a New 
Year’s eve arson fire, in a 
vacant home, caused by an 
exploding a pipe bomb.

 Hosea Daniel Dileoreto, 
18 and Steven James Rymer, 
28 were both charged 
with arson of an inhabited 
structure and use of an 
explosive device. Police 
said Rymer was one of a 
number of transients living 
in the vacant house in the 
800 block of North Oakland 
Ave., where the fire broke 
out. Dileoreto was said to 
live, next to the home, on 
the same block. 

Pasadena Fire 
Spokeswoman Lisa 
Derderian said damages 
to the home and contents 
were estimated at $450,000. 
The home was considered a 
total loss.

 The fire was first reported 
to officials shortly before 7 

p.m. Dec. 31. 
Police took Rymer and 
Dileoreto into custody 
Jan 10, at about 6:45 

p.m. after conducting an 
investigation. The area was 
blocked off for a short time 
as a multi-agency task force 
including a S.W.A.T. team 
and bomb squad. No other 
explosives were discovered 
officials said. 
Derderian also said 
investigators determined 
the motive was thrill and 
not part of any larger group 
of individuals. 
Both men are being held 
on $750,000 bond and 
expected back in court Feb. 

6. Both men face up to eight 
years in prison. 
Officials also said it was 
not clear how long the 
home was being used by 
transients. It became vacant 
in April after the death of 
the owner.
