Florida Man Discovered To Have Bomb Materials In Home

A Volusia County man is accused of having an explosive chemical that the terrorist group al-Qaida has dubbed the "mother of satan" in his home.

Lake Helen police searched the home of 37-year-old Jared Coburn on Tuesday after receiving a tip. 

During the search, authorities found triacetone triperoxide, also known as TATP.

Chief Mike Walker says they also found other bomb-making materials.

Walker says Coburn told authorities he "was making his own version of fireworks."

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood says Coburn was charged with manufacturing an explosive device and may face additional charges. The materials were so delicate that they were being detonated underground.

The terrorism task force was at the scene Tuesday night and the FAA posted a temporary no-fly zone.
