Authorities continue collecting chemicals and other items found at the home of a Houston man accused of trying to damage a Confederate statue at a Houston park with explosive materials.

Several houses near the home of Andrew Schneck, 25, were evacuated today.

After Schneck was allegedly caught trying to place explosives on the statue of a Confederate lieutenant, he told authorities he had other chemicals in his home, where he lives with his mother.

Houston Assistant Police Chief Larry Satterwhite said "significant hazardous materials" were found. Authorities were expected to detonate the materials.

According to court documents, Schneck's mother told investigators her son uses one of their properties "to conduct his chemistry experiments."

Court documents say Schneck has a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Austin College in Sherman, Texas.
