Federal investigators say they found bomb-making materials inside the Plano home of Anson Chi, the 32-year-old man accused of trying to blow up a natural gas pipeline in Plano more than a week ago.

According to court documents obtained by News 8,  "The officers observed green cannon fuses, jars containing liquids, digital scales," and other materials including sulfuric acid, nitric acid, thermometers, laboratory glassware and a hot plate.

Investigators also mentioned  that those materials are intended for "use in converting a readily assembled explosive device."

Furthermore, inside Chi's bedroom, agents claim they discovered  "various manuals and books dealing with technological slavery and domestic terrorism." 

Chi remains in the hospital, where he is being treated for injuries suffered during the alleged explosion.
