During a search of Surman’s home on the 2400 block of North Old Bethlehem Pike back on June 28, authorities say they discovered a number of illicit images featuring children on a hard drive that was found in his bedroom. The search was part of an investigation into a series of suspicious explosions that had rocked the area in recent weeks. Some explosions left huge craters in the ground, but no one was injured

Police also discovered four bombs, as well as suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia during their search.

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub in June said the search also located a host of chemicals used in the assembly of bombs, along with 10 firearms.
