"My dad was released that night. It was determined that he had no involvement and didn't really know what was going on," Julia explained in a video on Thursday, March 16. "And also the media did sensationalize it a bit."

Police found illegally untraceable guns, pills, a pill press, pressure cookers, fentanyl, chloroform, heroin, propane and formaldehyde — all materials often used to make explosives.
