NJ Synagogue Firebomb Suspect Has Bail Hearing
Prosecutors say a teenager charged in a series of attacks on New Jersey synagogues had a blueprint for a public school marked up for an attack with the words “Project Anarchy” written on it.
The Record of Woodland Park reports a Bergen County prosecutor discussed the blueprint during a bail hearing Wednesday for Aakash Dalal. The prosecutor said the Camden County school blueprint was the first thing police found while searching Dalal’s home.
The 19-year-old has pleaded not guilty to charges of arson, bias intimidation and criminal mischief. The charges stem from a series of attacks on synagogues in Bergen County, including the firebombing of a rabbi’s home.
His alleged co-conspirator, 19-year-old Anthony Graziano, has also pleaded not guilty.
Dalal’s bail was maintained at $2.5 million.
