Authorities appear to be closing in on a person of interest in connection with the Nashville bombing.

While law enforcement hasn’t named names, FBI and ATF agents were reportedly seen Saturday searching the home of Nashville local, Anthony Quinn Warner.

63-year-old Warner is believed to own an RV similar to the one seen on Christmas day, which broadcasted a bomb warning before the explosion went off.

Warner is allegedly a computer I.T. expert and may have been paranoid of ‘5G’ technology–the next generation of broadband for cellular networks.

In the weeks leading up to the attack, he also allegedly signed over the deed to his home for free. Authorities continue to investigate all of this, but have yet to confirm any details. They said they’re currently looking into all leads.

“We can’t confirm any individuals or anybody we’ve identified,” FBI Special Agent Doug Korneski said. “Again, as we mentioned, we have over 500 investigative leads and we’re following up on every one of those so there are a number of individuals that we’re looking at. At this point, we’re not prepared to identify any single individual.”

In the meantime, damage reports and cleanup efforts for the damaged 41 buildings are still underway.
