CBS News Interactive: Crime Beat
DAVIS (CBS) ― A UC Davis freshman is being questioned this morning after police found a homemade bomb in a dorm room last night forcing more than 400 students out of their dorms overnight.
Authorities found what appears to be two homemade pipe bombs in a dorm room last night after getting an anonymous call reporting them. Approximately 400 students were evacuated from the Tercero B dormitory, directed to wait in the nearby dining hall.
The bomb squad from Yolo county was called out. Agents from the FBI and ATF as well as members of the Sacramento County bomb squad are also assisting.
Police say after questioning four students they arrested 19-year-old Mark Woods, a freshman from Torrance.
He's being held on suspicion of materials with the intent to make an explosive or destructive device and other charges.
Officials now have a search warrant and are going through the student's dorm room. They are attempting to determine how to dispose of the bombs, either detonate them in place or remove them and dispose of them elsewhere, reported CBS station KOVR-TV in Sacramento.
Most of the students who had to evacuate the dorm room ended up pulling couches together in the dining hall and passed the time with movies. Many of them have classes this morning.
