HAZMAT returns to UC Davis researcher's apartment

DAVIS, CA - FBI agents and UC Davis police returned to the home of a UC Davis researcher who is accused of causing an explosion at an apartment complex in February.

Authorities were at David Snyder's apartment on 515 Sycamore Lane Thursday night, after they got new information connected to their investigation, UC Davis police spokesperson Andy Fell said.

People in HAZMAT suits were seen going into the apartment; several police officers and fire crew members were also at the scene. Fell said some items were removed from the home, but did not elaborate on specifics because the case in part of an ongoing investigation.

Snyder is charged with 10 counts of possessing firearms and explosives. His attorney said Snyder had the materials for research and wasn't intending to build a bomb. Prosecutors said investigators found liquid and solid explosive materials and devices to detonate them in the apartment; the prosecution said there also evidence Snyder was planning to leave the state and not return.

Last month, Snyder pled not guilty and was released on bail. Snyder is scheduled to be back in court on March 14.
