FBI: San Francisco Man Had Bomb Components

Posted: Updated:
Documents show that a search of a San Francisco social media expert's apartment turned up ball bearings, screws and components needed to make a homemade bomb. 
 
In an affidavit unsealed on Tuesday, FBI Special Agent Michael Eldridge says investigators found the materials inside a bag at the apartment of Ryan Kelly Chamberlain during a search over the weekend.
 
Eldridge says the bag also contained a screw top glass jar with batteries and a wire, a circuit board and a model rocket motor.  
 
The discovery prompted a nationwide manhunt for the 42-year-old Chamberlain. He was arrested on Monday and has been charged with one count of possession of an illegal destructive device.
 
The FBI has not said what, if any, plans Chamberlain had for the device.

The FBI has said he was considered armed and dangerous. (AP)
