A 57 year old man is in custody after Anaheim Police officers found several pounds of dangerous materials in his room. Anaheim Police were first called to an assisted living facility in the 200 block of N. Dale Ave around 10:00 am this morning regarding a resident who was possibly making illegal fireworks in his room. The man was cooperative and showed officers the materials in question. Further investigation revealed the materials were potentially explosive, prompting a response from the Orange County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad and Hazardous Materials specialists from Anaheim Fire & Rescue.

The building was partially evacuated and northbound traffic on Dale Ave was blocked for several hours while police and fire personnel conducted an investigation and confiscated the materials. There were no indications the suspect was making anything other than illegal firework type devices and there is no connection to terrorism. The suspect, Mark Schimm, was booked for felony possession of materials with intent to make a destructive device, possession of a destructive device without a permit, and arson. After medical clearance he will be booked at Orange County Jail with bail statutorily set at $250,000.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the incident.

A booking photo is not currently available.
