Friends and family of a man arrested after ‘suspicious material’ was found in his home say he’s just a scientist.

Cale Crase, 25, was arrested Wednesday after firefighters came to his Peachtree Avenue home for reports of a kitchen fire. Police say crews found explosive devices, a gun silencer and other illegal material.

Crase can be seen in a YouTube video, showing off the technology behind his homemade vaporizer.

“He’s just a scientist,” Crase’s girlfriend said. “That’s it. He doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He’s a genius if you talk to him.”

Several homes along Peachtree Avenue were voluntarily evacuated for a few hours Wednesday night while crews investigated and ultimately detonated the materials found in Crase’s home.
