A Texas man has been arrested and charged after allegedly trying to plant a bomb on a Confederate statue at a Houston park, authorities said Monday. Andrew Cecil Schneck, 25, was charged with attempting to maliciously damage or destroy property receiving federal financial assistance, federal prosecutors announced.
The ranger "observed Schneck to be holding two small boxes with various items inside," including "what appeared to be duct tape and wires," a criminal complaint says. Schneck, who majored in chemistry at Austin College, was also found with a bottle containing liquid made up of compounds used as explosives.
When asked by the ranger whether he wanted to harm the Dowling statue, Schneck replied that he did not "like that guy," according to the criminal complaint.
“Some very hazardous materials were found (in the house), Houston Police Assistant Chief Larry Satterwhite said Monday at a press conference. “And we are in the process of trying to mitigate that and remove those materials in a safe manner that does not jeopardize the public and keeps everyone safe.”
Controlled explosions were conducted at the scene, in the area of Albans Road between Hazard Street and Wilton Street, according to a city alert.
