FBI arrests explosives suspect in San Francisco

Following a three-day manhunt, the FBI on Monday managed to arrest the San Francisco man who possessed explosive materials in his apartment.

In a weekend raid, federal authorities found explosive materials in 42-year-old Ryan Kelly Chamberlain II's apartment.

Chamberlain has been found suffering from depression following breakup from his girlfriend and loss of job. Recovery of explosive materials from his apartment triggered fears that he could pose a serious threat to the public.

Around a fortnight back, 22-year-old depressed Elliot Rodger fatally stabbed three men near his own apartment, of which two died, and then killed three young women, before taking his own life. In his 137-page manifesto, he wrote that he wanted to destroy everything that he loved but failed to achieve.

The FBI arrested Chamberlain with the help of local police. However, FBI spokesperson Peter Lee said that Chamberlain didn't seem to pose an immediate danger to public safety.

However before the suspect's arrest, Lee said, "Anyone who has the means, methods and access to make a bomb should be considered armed and dangerous individual for public safety."

Chamberlain's online resume states that he was a public relations contractor for a number of local technology and marketing companies. His former boss Brooke Wentz said he last contacted her last Friday to remind her to deposit his paycheck at a new bank account. She also described the suspect as a "nice" guy.
