LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - In late February court records revealed a hand-written list of items FBI agents wished to seize from terror suspect Khalid Aldawsari, 20, at his Lubbock apartment.  Last week updated court records revealed what agents actually found. 

Aldawsari is jailed on a federal charge of Attempted Use of a Weapon of Mass Destruction for which he could be imprisoned the rest of his life if convicted. He was living in 2400 Glenna Goodacre Blvd and attending classes at South Plains College.  Prior to transferring to SPC this year he had been a student of chemical engineering at Texas Tech.

Among his desired targets were hydro-dams, nuclear facilities and the home of former President George W. Bush. 

Thursday's update to Aldawsari's court records show the FBI took nitric acid and sulfuric acid.  The two ingredients could be used to make an explosive.  FBI agents also took from Aldawsari's apartment chemical suits and a surgical mask.  Also confiscated was a Christmas light bulb connected to a lamp cord, and a disassembled clock. 

All of the evidence was taken from Aldawsari's apartment.  A separate document filed Thursday shows "no inventory seized" from Aldawsari's car. 

Aldawsari's next court appearance is scheduled for March 11th, 9:00 AM for a hearing as to whether he can post bond to get out of jail until his trial date. 

The following list consists of highlights of what the FBI seized from Aldawsari:
