New Jersey Prosecutors Say They Found a Map in the Home of a Firebombing Suspect Who Lived in Their State.

Accused synagogue firebomber Nicholas Malindretos was ordered held without bail by a federal judge in Newark on Thursday.

Prosecutors claim that federal agents discovered gasoline, wicks, and lighters in his home, as well as notes with a circle drawn in a 10-mile radius on a map, with “a ten-mile radius of targets” that included police and military as potential targets.

However, U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger would not provide any further details about the alleged mental health issues that were alluded to.

Sellinger remarked that the defendant faces a maximum of 20 years in prison for the “very serious offence” of throwing a firebomb at a building, the temple.

While he did say, “This investigation has just begun,” he would not confirm or deny whether bias charges could be added.

Malindretos, the prosecutor said, is 26 years old, has no permanent address, and has been staying in the basement apartment of a friend.

“Hate crimes have got to stop, but until they do the F.B.I. and all of our partners will make investigating them and bringing them to resolution a top priority,” said James Dennehy, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Newark office.

Malindretos is accused of trying to use fire to destroy a building used in interstate commerce.
