state police continue to locate and take possession of his supplies and weapons stored.
they've found two pipe bombs that could be detonated either by tripwire or lighted fuse.
they've had credible sightings as recent as the past 24 hours.
items left behind in a manner that shows he was in the process of using them - hastily discarded/left behind.
what they've found has been in the area/perimeter of the search zone.
don't want to disclose specifics about exactly what they have recovered at this point, but may do so in the future.
can't say if he made the explosive devices, just that they're being looked at by the FBI.
devices not deployed, but found in or near other items they've recovered.
some of the items found, 'he brought with him' others were likely stored ahead of time.
the devices have been rendered safe, but explosives experts have confirmed that they would have a substantial explosive force.
the flash/bang from yesterday was part of a search in the area, but that it was deployed by PSP
they're not willing to disclose all details of the evidence collected thus far, focusing more on public safety issues and the search area itself.
all within the past 24 hrs.
concern over hunters going into the search area. use extreme caution if going into the search area. wear orange. be cautious and stay clear of
officers actively conducting the search.
no reason to believe he is receiving any support or assistance by anyone else.
no shots fired by law enforcement thus far.
shots fired in the woods, but no way to determine their source or intended target(s).
5 mile search radius remains substantially close to current area/perimeter.... a much more contained area than it could be.
have had situations where they felt confident they had him contained and would be able to take into custody, but at distances where he was still able
to evade capture.
we've significantly degraded his ability to continue.
we don't believe this was his actual plan, but that the way things went/have gone, things went 'wrong' with 'his plan' and basically forced him
to remain in the area search/perimeter.
night time search contingents still number in the hundreds.
he had a plan, but 'don't believe this is the way he had thought things would go'
things he's abandoned not necessarily per his plan. that he had to to avoid capture.
have found a number of locations where he has stayed, but can't say they've actually found something Bivens would consider/call an actual bunker. -
potential deer blinds, etc.
continue to find items that clearly belong to him.
feels certain that frein is not sleeping well at night. stressed and has had his ability to continue significantly impacted.
dark colored clothing in all sightings @ 75-100 yard distances.
everyone involved still highly confident and focused on bringing this to a resolve asap.
doesn't believe troopers shot were specifically targeted.
that was about it.
