Agency officials say Daniel Andreas San Diego, 33, is not in custody, but they refused to provide further details until their announcement Wednesday afternoon in Springfield, Mass., the AP reported.

San Diego is accused of bombing Chiron Corp., a biotechnology firm in Emeryville, Calif., and Shaklee Corp., a Pleasanton, Calif., nutrition and cosmetics company, in 2003. No one was hurt in the bombings.

A group calling itself "Revolutionary Cells" took responsibility, saying the companies were targeted for their ties to a research company that experimented on animals, the AP reported.
