WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) - A chemistry researcher at the University of California, Davis who was injured in an explosion at his campus apartment last week faces 10 charges of possessing firearms and explosives.

The Yolo County District Attorney's office does not say whether 32-year-old David Snyder intended to harm anyone with the items found in his apartment. He was arrested after a 1 a.m. blast a week ago.

Snyder was charged Thursday with two felony counts of possessing firearms in his apartment without the university's permission. Three counts say he possessed a destructive device or explosive, while four allege he recklessly disposed of hazardous waste.

The final charge says he possessed materials with the intent to make a destructive device. He faces arraignment later Thursday and is being held on $2 million bond.
