A Cape May County man is facing various criminal charges after police responded to medical call at his residence and found explosive chemicals, a gun, and LSD.

Sea Isle City police say Steven Lamb, 29, was arrested after arriving police discovered suspicious materials inside his Sea Isle City home on Sept. 30.

He was transported to an area hospital. Authorities have not disclosed why Lamb was transported for treatment.

Police subsequently requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Atlantic City Police Department Bomb Squad, and the Cape May County Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive Weapons Unit.

“At no time were Sea Isle residents in any danger,” Sea Isle City Police Department Chief Thomas D’Intino said.

Police charged Lamb with two counts of possession of chemicals and components for the purpose of manufacturing explosive devices, possession of distribution quantities of LSD strips, possession of a CO2-powered handgun for an unlawful purpose, distribution quantities of controlled dangerous substances, and related CDS offenses.
