A man has been arrested after a day-long investigation at a home in Isle of Wight County.

FBI officials, along with Virginia State Police, Isle of Wight County Sheriff's Office, and Carrollton Volunteer Fire Department were in the Graystone subdivision on Tuesday investigating a single home.

Investigators announced that 32-year-old Paul Longoria was arrested on a felony charge of manufacture, possession, and/or use of fire bombs or explosive materials or devices.

According to the criminal complaint, FBI officials got a search warrant for Longoria's home after threatening online communication was connected to an IP address originating from the home.

During the search, investigators said they found "numerous items associated with the making of incendiary devices" in the garage and in Longoria's bedroom.
