Bail for NJ synagogue firebomb suspect stays $2.5M

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 ( http://bit.ly/GFTVzu) reports a Bergen County prosecutor discussed the blueprint during a bail hearing Wednesday for Aakash Dalal (AH'-kash DAH'-lal). The prosecutor says 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.

Nineteen-year-old Anthony Graziano also has pleaded not guilty in the case.

Dalal's bail was kept at $2.5 million.
