Man Accused Of Trying To Destroy Confederate Monument In Houston

Man Accused Of Trying To Destroy Confederate Monument In Houston”

A Houston man is under arrest for allegedly placing explosives at the base of a Confederate monument in Hermann Park, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Schneck is now facing charges of attempting to maliciously damage or destroy property receiving federal financial assistance, and will remain in federal custody until a hearing Thursday. A Houston park ranger found Schneck with two boxes with duct tape and wires as well as a bottle and a small tube of compounds that tests later revealed to be explosive materials, namely nitroglycerin and hexamethylene triperoxide diamine, a criminal complaint read.

He pleaded guilty in August 2014 to federal charges of storing picric acid, an explosive also used in medicine and dyes, at a Houston home.

In 2016, Schneck's lawyer, Phillip H. Hilder, petitioned Judge Nancy K. Johnson to sign an order terminating Schneck's term of probation.

"In its undiluted form, [nitroglycerin] is one of the world's most powerful explosives", the statement said.

Authorities declined to specify what materials they found in the home of 25-year-old Andrew Schneck, citing the ongoing investigation. According to Martinez, Schneck had been conducting "chemistry experiments" inside the house.

At one point, Schneck "took a clear plastic bottle appearing to be full of a clear liquid from one of the boxes", FBI Special Agent Patrick Hutchinson wrote.

The ranger also noticed a timer and wires near Schneck, the complaint said. During the arrest, the ranger asked Schneck "whether he wanted to harm the Dowling statue.[He] replied that he did not 'like that guy'". Hutchinson noted that HTMD can be used as an initiatory or prime explosive.

Germany responded with outrage to Erdogan's comments, calling it an "unprecedented act of interference". The Turkish diaspora in Germany is estimated at about three million. "He knows no limits!"

Schneck reportedly told police that he had other chemicals at his home. "It would be premature to comment at this time since we have not seen the evidence". The motion said early termination was warranted because Schneck had "devoted himself to his education and was awarded a Bachelor of Arts from Austin College" and had "matured and his focus is no longer concentrated on high-risk activities". That included a ban on coming in contact with explosive materials.

Schneck made his initial appearance in court Monday morning.

According to the Justice Department, he faces up to 40 years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.
