Bail Set at $25K for Calif. Anthrax Scare Suspect

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) _ A federal judge has set the bond of a
California man suspected of mailing more than 120 hoax anthrax
letters nationwide at $25,000.
U.S. Magistrate Kimberly Mueller says Friday that the bond for
66-year-old Marc M. Keyser must be co-signed by a sister and
brother-in-law. Mueller also barred Keyser from any activities
intended to draw responses to a biochemical hazard.
Keyser was arrested Wednesday in Sacramento on three counts of
sending hoax anthrax threats by mail.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner argued that Keyser could
flee and is likely to send more packages.
Assistant Federal Defender Rachelle Barbour says her client was
trying to inform the public of its vulnerability to anthrax
