Federal prosecutors said on Saturday night a park ranger spotted Schneck kneeling in bushes in front of the general Dowling Monument in Houston's Hermann Park.

"He was on a five-year probation based on his unlawful storage and handling of explosive materials", Borkovich said.
Federal investigators swarmed near Schneck's house on Monday.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Scheck had been conducting "chemistry experiments" inside his parents' $2.1 million home.
