UC Davis – Explosives Found In Dorm Room

A student at UC Davis is in custody after authorities say they found explosive devices in a dorm room.

University police Capt. Joyce Souza tells the Sacramento Bee that investigators found what appears to be two pipe bombs in a dorm.

Police became aware of the situation Wednesday night after a woman reported that students had possible explosive devices in a dorm room. Police say after questioning four students they arrested 19-year-old Mark Woods, a freshman from Southern California.

He’s being held on possession of materials with the intent to make an explosive or destructive device and other charges.

A spokesman for the UC Davis Fire Department says 400 students in eight dormitory buildings were evacuated around 9 p.m. last night after getting a report from a woman who reported students with possible explosive devices in a room.

A bomb ordinance team was sent in to assess the room where the explosives were found this morning.

Authorities say the bomb team was not able to go in until this morning because a search warrant had to be obtained.
