A political consultant who was the subject of a nationwide search had the necessary material for an improvised bomb in his San Francisco apartment.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the FBI found explosive powder, wires for a detonator, ball bearings and a motor in Ryan Chamberlain’s apartment.
What’s unclear is what the social media guru planned on doing with the bomb, investigators said.
Chamberlain, 42, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of possessing an illegal explosive device.
Authorities haven’t said what prompted the nationwide search, which led to Chamberlain’s arrest Monday night.
He was considered “armed and dangerous.”
