SPRINGFIELD — A Missouri man with alleged ties to white supremacists charged in an Arizona bombing has pleaded not guilty to additional federal weapons charges.
Robert N. Joos, 56, of Powell, pleaded not guilty in federal court Tuesday to two counts of unlawful transport of firearms and one count of transporting explosive materials interstate.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that Joos is being held without bond. He was arrested in late June as part of an investigation into a 2004 mail bombing in Scottsdale, Ariz., that injured a black city official.
Federal prosecutors say an investigation found that people involved in the white supremacist movement in the U.S. met for survival training at Joos' property in McDonald County.
Prosecutors also allege that the first call one of the suspects made after the bombing was to Joos.
