FBI agents spent hours testing materials inside the San Francisco home of Ryan Chamberlain this week after he was charged with possessing explosives.

ABC News reports that FBI technicians used sophisticated lab equipment to test for explosive substances in the home of the well-known political and media consultant.

The FBI received a second search warrant for the house.

“The search warrant maybe focuses more on some other items that would be of interest to us, again we are still going to collect that evidence because it’s an ongoing investigation,” FBI spokesperson Peter Lee said.

Chamberlain’s arrest follows a tip that indicated he was making a bomb in his apartment.

The San Francisco political consultant who was the subject of a nationwide manhunt had bomb-making materials that were “designed to main or kill,” the FBI said.

It’s unclear whether the FBI has any information indicating that Ryan Chamberlain planned to use the equipment found in his apartment on Saturday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

FBI agents found the supplies in a messenger bag on the dining room floor of his apartment.

“FBI bomb technicians believe that the circuit board … was designed to serve as a remote control, allowing detonation of the device from afar,” the affidavit stated.

The FBI said Charmberlain lived alone.

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.”
