A loaded .357 revolver was found in jamieson's vehicle, a violation of his "restricted person" status as a prior convicted felon.
Deputies reported an odor of propane around the home and called fire officials, who found propane tanks connected to a car batteries, as well as wires and battery chargers that indicated it was a possible explosive device.
A witness claimed that Jamieson said "it was going to be like Ruby Ridge here."

Because Jamieson was deemed a flight risk with a history of aggravated assaults in addition to the explosives found at the scene, it was recommended that he be held with no bail.
