FBI: California Man Arrested in Anthrax Hoaxes

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) _ Authorities say they have arrested a man
on suspicion of sending hoax anthrax mailings to media outlets and
a congressional office.
The FBI says Marc M. Keyser was taken into custody at his home
in Sacramento on Wednesday. He is charged with three counts of
sending a hoax letter.
The agency says he sent envelopes containing a packet of sugar
with the label ``anthrax sample.'' The recipients included the
office of California Congressman George Radanovich and a North
Carolina newspaper.
The FBI says none of the packets has tested positive for
hazardous material.
It says the arrest is not connected to recent hoax mailings sent
to financial institutions last week.
