Arrested UCD researcher due in court Thursday

A UC Davis researcher accused of keeping guns and the makings for explosives inside his Russell Park apartment is scheduled to be arraigned on felony charges Thursday afternoon in Yolo Superior Court.

David Scott Snyder, 32, was booked Sunday afternoon at the Yolo County Jail, where he has been declining requests for media interviews. His bail remains set at $2 million.

The junior researcher, who earned both a bachelor’s degree and Ph.D. in chemistry from UCD, is accused of having various substances and materials to make explosives, as well as firearms and a live explosive, inside his apartment at 418 Russell Park. Specifics about the materials and weapons were not disclosed, though authorities have said they do not believe he was plotting a larger crime against the campus or community.

Snyder’s alleged activity came to light early Thursday morning when he sought treatment at a local hospital for hand injuries stemming from a small explosion. Police were called and, after seeing the contents of Snyder’s apartment, evacuated several buildings before embarking on a removal process that took roughly 20 hours.

Snyder faces felony charges of possession of an explosive, possession of substances and/or materials with intent to make a destructive device, and two counts of possessing a firearm on campus, UCD Police Chief Matt Carmichael said. Snyder also has been placed on investigatory leave from his short-term job in a campus chemistry lab.

Thursday’s arraignment hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in Commissioner Janene Beronio’s courtroom.
