On 15 January 2021, shortly after 1700 hours local time, San Francisco Police Department officers and FBI agents discovered explosive precursor chemicals (EPCs) while searching a 37-year-old male suspect’s RV located in a San Francisco RV park. Technicians with the San Francisco Fire Department’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Unit responded to assist while investigators evacuated a portion of the RV park.
