Man arrested outside Dearborn Mosque, thoughts?

DEARBORN, Mich. - A 63-year-old California man who had explosives with him was arrested outside one of the nation's largest mosques in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, authorities in Michigan said.

Dearborn police said Roger Stockham was arraigned Wednesday on one count of making a false report or threat of terrorism and one count of possessing explosives with an unlawful intent. A statement from police says Stockham had class-C fireworks.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations' Michigan chapter says Stockham was arrested Monday in the parking lot of Islamic Center of America.

Stockham remained jailed Sunday on a $500,000 bond. A preliminary examination is scheduled for Friday.

Police didn't know whether Stockham had an attorney. A public records search did not turn up a listed number for Stockham.

Dearborn, located about 10 miles west of Detroit, is the capital of the Detroit area's Arab American community, which is one of the largest in the U.S.
