NORTH ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A man who identified himself as the step-father of Juan Thompson said a federal raid has taken everything but Thompson's belongings. 

Thompson, 31, is the main suspect behind a months-long investigation by the FBI, along with several local and national agencies. Thompson is accused of making at least eight bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers. He is also accused of trying to pin the threats on an ex-lover, who the FBI said he harassed. 

FBI officials raided a north St. Louis home that is connected to Thompson. It is also home to Thompson's step-father, Tyrone Lampkin. Lampkin said his children were waiting for their school bus when the FBI forcibly came through the door. 

"The door was opened, (they) could have opened the door. No one was keeping (them) out," Tyrone Lampkin said.

The man also said the residence is one that Thompson has not visited in months. 

News 4 learned the FBI took electronics from the home, that the step-father said only belonged to his children and grand-children. He said none of the items the FBI agents took belonged to Thompson. 

As they agents came down the steps with items from the home, Thompson's step-father said the allegations against his step-son were shocking, but did not know much outside of what he was told by the FBI. 

"I don't know (anything) right now," Lampkin said.
