Federal Bureau of Investigation documents state that Jameson planned to use his tow truck for a mass-casualty attack on Pier 39 because he "had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area".
"Jameson explained that he also desired to use explosives and described a plan in which explosives could "tunnel" or "funnel" people into a location where Jameson could inflict casualties", McKinney stated.
Jameson chose Christmas Day for the attack and had no escape plan because he planned to die.
The terror plot seemed to unravel earlier this week.
A search warrant was executed on Wednesday at Jameson's Modesto home.

They say Mr Jameson came to their attention in September after expressing "radical jihadi beliefs" and support of so-called Islamic State through social media use.
"Thanks to the diligent efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement agencies, a planned attack has been prevented from occurring in our city", Acting Mayor London Breed said in a statement Friday. The agent said the NY attack he was referring to was the October 31 attack during which a driver used his truck to killed 9 people.
Jameson received sharpshooter training in the U.S. Marines in 2009 before being discharged for "fraudulent enlistment" after failing to disclose the fact that he suffered from asthma, according to the complaint. It was written in the past tense and said that "you all have brought this upon yourselves". Each and every Kuffar in this Nationalistic, Godless society has a hand in this. At the point when the covert operator answered, "We can just do Allah's will", James supposedly answered, "Inshallah (God willing) one day I can. Both you and he are wrong, it belongs to the [Muslims]". It was signed by Abdallah Abu Everitt Ibn Gordon Al-Amriki and was dated December 16.
Sarah Jameson said that the family had been OK with her nephew converting to Islam, although they had joked with him about "blowing things up".
