The actor who played Crabbe the bully in 6 of the "Harry Potter" movies has been charged with possession of a homemade bomb ... which cops say he intended to detonate during the London riots.

According to U.K. reports, cops believe 22-year-old Jamie Waylett was packing a Molotov cocktail while looting champagne from a drug store during the London riots on August 8th.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Waylett was later identified by video footage after the incident  ... and cops eventually arrested him on Sept. 20.

At some point during the investigation, cops claim they found 15 marijuana plants in Waylett's home.

Cops released a statement saying ... "[Waylett] was charged with violent disorder, having an article with intent to destroy or damage property, receiving stolen goods and also cultivating cannabis plants."

Waylett was eventually released on bail -- he's due back in court on Nov. 11.

You know, you look at the photo of this kid and you say to yourself, 'Does this kid look like he'd do that?'...and for me the obvious answer is "YES"!

Harry Potter is a great movie.

Meanwhile, this was posted yesterday on the “Amy Adams, What's the Worst Movie EVER?” thread. And I’m now obsessed with it. lol

Movie is titled ‘13th Grade’ and it stars Screech and that chick from Bachelor Pad.

here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMEa9DUOrJ4

he's got the paychecks from 6 movies at age 22 and he needs to loot champagne from a store during a riot? Even if he was only paid $10-$20K per movie, its so much more than most kids his age have. Most of them here have nothing but college debt. Wow.

He's broke and has to steal because he uses cocaine apparently. I was reported some time ago that this kid was in trouble with drugs so this doesn't surprise me. Sad that people that could have it all ruin it.

Uh, yeah. Thanks for being in jail and not Deathly Hallows 2, Crabbe. You were supposed to die, not Goyle. >_

"Intended to Detonate Bomb" and "released on bail" do not belong in the same story. Of course, it is the UK.
