(NEW YORK) — Police searching for an accused cop killer in the dense woods of the Poconos Mountains have found explosives believed to belong to the suspect, Eric Frein, a law enforcement source told ABC News.

The manhunt for Frein has entered its third week. Police have previously said they were being cautious searching cabins and caves near the border of Pike and Monroe counties in eastern Pennsylvania for fear that Frein may have set booby-traps.

Frein is accused of shooting two state troopers, killing one, at the Blooming Grove police barracks on Sept. 12, before fleeing into the woods.

Police have also found the suspect’s abandoned Jeep, soiled diapers, Serbian cigarettes and an AK-47 in the search.
