FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Chemicals from Fairfield resident Joseph Callahan's Bronson Road home began to be removed Tuesday under the supervision of state and local fire marshals.
Callahan hired a private contractor to remove the chemicals from the home.
Callahan, 69, was arrested Monday and charged with 11 counts of illegal possession of explosives, one count of manufacturing bombs and six counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.
As a part of the conditions of his release, Callahan was required to assist law enforcement in removing the chemicals that were on the property.
No information has been released as to the type of chemicals that were on the property yet, only that they were in sealed and labeled containers.
The chemicals were found when police went to the house on Oct. 1, when Callahan called because he believed there had been an intruder in his home. The amount of chemicals caused the officers to call the Hazardous Material Unit to the house which resulted in the closure of Bronson Road for nearly two days.
