Those must have been some kick-ass speakers

Derrick Shareef of Illinois was arrested Wednesday and charged with "one count of attempting to damage or destroy a building by fire or explosion and one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction." He made made a court appearance today in Chicago. The prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald (no, not that one!) said that the public was never in any danger because Shareef has been under surveillance for some time, after confessing to an acquaintance that he wanted to take up jihading.

Here's what I don't understand:
Shareef was arrested Wednesday by the Chicago Joint Terrorism Task Force after he met an undercover agent in the mall parking lot and traded a set of stereo speakers for four hand grenades and a hand gun, according to charges.
Two questions:
  1. What the hell kind of stereo system does that guy have?
  2. Since when are grenades weapons of mass destruction?
