Man arrested while looking for explosives linked to damaged PG&E transformers: SJPD

Police said Friday a man arrested in San Jose on suspicion of possessing explosives may be linked to explosion-damaged PG&E transformers.

The suspect turned out to be 36-year-old Pyotr Karasev, who appeared in court on Friday afternoon. He is charged with nine felony charges for allegedly possessing explosives that pose a threat to his neighbors, the community and his own children.

San José Police have an update on a man’s arrest on suspicion of possession of explosives.

Police, the FBI and other law enforcement on Friday were still searching Karasev’s San Jose home in the 600 block of Potomac Court, which is reportedly filled with explosives.

According to police, Karasev lived in a two-story house near Gunderson High School with his wife and two children, whose age is unknown.

Police on Friday said they intended to remain in the area for the next five days while continuing to investigate and search the home. They added that there is no permanent threat to the population.

Karasev may be involved in two explosions in San Jose that damaged PG&E transformers, which occurred Jan. 5 on Snell Avenue and Dec. 8 on Thornwood Drive, police said.

Karasev is in custody without bail and will return to court on April 26 to plead guilty.
