While FBI agents were searching three Houston-area homes Friday for a potentially dangerous chemical, raids were underway in Michigan on property owned by the same person, officials confirmed.

The agency on Sunday confirmed agents searched two properties in northwest Michigan. The addresses, confirmed by FBI, are on northern Lake Michigan and owned by Cecily Horton, according to online records from theLeelanau County Equalization Department. Federal agents on Friday searched two Houston homes and one Bryan home also owned by Horton, an art consultant, and her husband, Andrew Schneck.

Robert Beeckman. a Detroit FBI official, would not release any details of the investigation there, saying the search warrant is under seal. He also wouldn't say whether the Michigan activity is related to the searches in Texas.

The Leelanau County Sheriff's Office posted on its website that agents used hazardous material protective clothing while executing warrants beginning early Friday morning. The website stated the investigation involved hazardous materials, and that up to 60 federal agents were involved. The website stated the search was related to a case in another state, but did not specify where.

FBI agents in hazmat gear showed up in Horton's Houston properties on Friday, including a Fall River home, a house in the 2000 block of Albans in the Memorial area and a condominium complex in Bryan.

A law enforcement source who spoke off the record said the Houston-area searches had been prompted by someone's ordering of chemicals that could be used to make gas, such as nerve gas or tear gas.

The FBI touched off two detonations in the Fall River home on Saturday, one at 1:50 p.m., the second around 4 p.m.

A few FBI agents in flak jackets and helmets appeared to go in and out of the house shortly before the detonation. The search continued on and off during that time.

The source said the couple is not the target of the search.

Shauna Dunlap of the Houston FBI office said the search at the Fall River home ended at 8:35 p.m. Saturday and no search was expected on Sunday. She would not comment on the searches by Michigan officials.
