The Federal Bureau of Investigation announced Friday that it had arrested a man suspected of planning a terror attack on Christmas Day in San Francisco, The Hill reports.

Everitt Aaron Jameson, 26, was arrested Wednesday at him home in Modesto, California. The criminal complaint reports that Jameson revealed his plans to an undercover FBI agent.

"Jameson specifically named Pier 39 in San Francisco as a target location because he had been there before and knew that it was a heavily crowded area, and that, according to Jameson, no reconnaissance or site survey would be necessary (because Jameson already was familiar with the area). Jameson explained that he also desired to use explosives, and described a plan in which explosives could 'tunnel' or 'funnel' people into a location where Jameson could inflict casualties," the criminal complaint reads.

The complaint notes that Jameson described Christmas Day as a "perfect day" to attack, and that he "espoused radical jihadi beliefs, including authoring social media posts that are supportive of terrorism, communicating with people he believes share his jihadi views and offering to provide services to such people."

Jameson is in federal custody as of Friday afternoon, according to CBS San Francisco.
