NC Man Accused of Plotting to Attack Co-workers Held Without Bond

Mark Schmidt of Marion, NC was denied bond in a hearing today in US Federal Court in Asheville.

Authorities believed Schmidt would not appear if he was released and that he is a danger to the community.

Schmidt was arrested in 2013 after believing to be plotting an attack against his co-workers.

The FBI investigated and say they found several weapons, ammunition, and Nazi memorabilia at Mark Schmidt’s home.

Schmidt had previously been convicted of possessing a pipe bomb and is not allowed under federal law to have a weapon.

He now faces charges for illegally possessing a weapon.
