CHICAGO (CBS) — A Lombard man will face a judge Thursday morning about why he allegedly had explosive materials including flash powder, potassium nitrate and BBs in his possession.

Daniel Waters is currently behind bars on bond with a status hearing set for Thursday.

He was arrested earlier this month when Lombard police found explosive materials in his home.

They also discovered his writings about starting a militia.

CBS 2 has learned some of the other alleged items police found include two pounds of sulfer powder, one pound of activated charcoal, a bag of flash powder, a safety fuse spool, ball bearing, 30 PVC pipes, and four premade pipes with caps, wholes and wicks.
