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.

Arab Spring social unrest sparked wannabe movements
all over the world. Now we have Wall Street hippies
looking for their socialistic free lunch in NYC. Celeb's
sent by LA so far include: Kanye West, Susan Sarandon,
Michael Moore, Tim Roberts. Al Sharpton because he
heard the movement needed a real leader. Please
send Sean Penn so he can cry about the unjustness
of it all. Obama will have to appropriate more money
just to clean the urine, faecies, and trash

Why do they "believe" he had a homemade bomb during the riots in August if they had to identify him from video and picked him up in September? I need more information to "believe" all the charges.

It's sad, this kid could have been a lot more than a criminal. He had so many opportunities that other people his age didn't have. Hopefully he decides to turn his life around and start making better decisions. But I really can't understand anyone who planned to detonate a homemade bomb.

This was not the first time he was busted for pot cultivation. See this news article from the sun in 2009:
