Bail Increased For Defendant in Alleged Muslim Community Bomb Plot

Bail has been increased for one of the defendants indicted in a plot to bomb a Muslim community.

Andrew Crysel posted bail after his arrest, but his bail was increased at his arraignment today to $250,000 cash or $500,000 bond. And he was taken into custody.

Co-defendants Brian Colaneri and Vincent Vetromile remain held without bail and will argue for bail later this month.

The three men from Greece, and 16-year-old Nicholas Pheilshifter, face multiple counts of terrorism conspiracy and possession of explosives. Court papers say the FBI determined two homemade bombs seized from the teenager's home were capable of exploding.

The defendants allegedly targeted the community of Islamberg because they believed all Muslims are "automatically terrorists."
