He began searching the Internet about a year ago for information about building improvised explosive devices, the complaint claims. Federal investigators who searched Ullah’s Brooklyn home recovered metal pipes, pieces of wire and fragments of what appeared to be Christmas tree lights and multiple screws consistent with the screws found at the bombing scene.
Also found was a passport with the name Akayet Ullah that featured multiple handwritten notations, including “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE,” the complaint alleged.
Earlier, the NYPD announced that Ullah faced state charges including criminal possession of a weapon, supporting an act of terrorism and making terroristic threats.
Ullah was not on the radar of law enforcement prior to Monday’s blast, John Miller, NYPD’s deputy commissioner for counterterrorism and intelligence, told CBS This Morning. He said Ullah did not appear to have been struggling financially or facing any other particular pressures.
