SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California man arrested after an FBI manhunt must remain jailed without bail while awaiting trial on charges of possessing a destructive device.

A federal judge in San Francisco denied Ryan Chamberlain's request to transfer to a mental hospital so he can get psychiatric treatment.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria wrote in Tuesday's filing that prosecutors had presented "clear and convincing" evidence that Chamberlain would be a danger to the public if released from jail.

Chamberlain was arrested in early June after a three-day manhunt that authorities said was prompted by the discovery of bomb-making materials in his apartment. Chamberlain apparently came to the attention of the FBI as it investigated and monitored an online marketplace where people allegedly bought and sold guns, bombs, drugs, chemicals and counterfeit goods.
