After a three-day manhunt, the FBI has arrested a man they say stockpiled explosives in his San Francisco apartment. Ryan Kelly Chamberlain II was arrested by San Francisco police Monday.

According to SFGate, Chamberlain had written an “apparent’’ suicide note on Facebook earlier in the day. The FBI said Chamberlain was armed and dangerous.

A new message on Chamberlain’s Twitter account pushed back against some of the FBI’s allegations:

He was found when a witness spotted him near Crissy Field in San Francisco. The field is part of The Presidio, a park system near the Golden Gate Bridge.

From SFGate:

"He looked pretty surprised and frantic. He was asking for help," said Morgan Manos, an Uber driver who witnessed the arrest and recognized Chamberlain from media photos. "He saw me recording (with a video camera) and asked me for help."

A police scanner recording captured the moment when Chamberlain was taken into custody:
