The FBI was back for a second time to search the Plano home of a man suspected of trying to blow up a gas line.

Federal agents arrived at the house in the 3200 block of Anchor Road at about noon and spent close to six hours removing more evidence from the home, including boxes and bags.

The FBI said its evidence response team, which specializes in "collecting evidence supporting FBI priority investigations," executed the search.

Investigators first searched the home on Monday, after an explosion along West Parker Road. The man told police he was hit by a car, but evidence at the scene indicated he was trying to tamper with the natural gas system when a homemade bomb he was carrying detonated.

The FBI would not say what it was looking for in the second search. Agents found explosives in their first search of the home on Monday.

NBC 5 is not naming the man because authorities have not identified or charged him.
