San Jose Man Arrested for Operating Destructive Device Manufacturing Operation
San Jose police have apprehended a man who was allegedly running a destructive device manufacturing operation.
The arrest was made following the discovery of bomb-making equipment in the possession of the suspect.
Authorities identified the suspect as Adam Mr, who was apprehended during a security sweep conducted after a burglary at a building on Old Bayshore Highway.
Law enforcement officers found materials and equipment associated with the production of destructive devices.
Upon obtaining a search warrant for Mr’s residence, investigators uncovered over 100 pounds of precursor materials used in the manufacturing of explosives.
The suspect had military-grade M80s in his possession, which are typically employed to simulate artillery fire.
These M80s typically contain around five grams of flash powder.
However, the devices found within the suspect’s warehouse and in his possession contained significantly higher amounts, ranging from 10 to 15 grams of flash powder.
At this stage, investigators have not determined the suspect’s intended purpose for the explosives.
The motive behind the operation remains unclear.
Following his arrest, the suspect was booked into police custody.
Law enforcement agencies are working diligently to uncover any potential connections or threats related to this case.
