PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- The girlfriend of the man who is at the center of an ongoing investigation into a series of Upper Bucks County explosions is now charged as well, accused of aiding him. 

Thirty-one-year-old Tina Smith of Milford Township has been charged with conspiracy to possess or manufacture a weapon of mass destruction among other offenses.

She's accused of helping her boyfriend, 30-year-old David Surman, Jr., who was arrested over the summer after the Bucks County District Attorney's Office says mutliple bombs were found during a search of Surman's chemical business and his Quakertown home, where Smith lived as well.

According to court documents, photos of explosives were found on Smith's cell phone. She also said she was with Surman several times when he "lit something with a lighter and threw it out the window of a vehicle."

Smith has posted bail.

Surman was arraigned earlier this week on one count of possession of child pornograghy.
