Bail Remains At $8M For Las Vegas Man Charged With Terrorism

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge has denied a request from a Las Vegas man to lower his $8 million bail imposed after he was indicted on charges of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.

Clark County District Court Judge Jennifer Togliatti on Tuesday denied the motion from 40-year-old Nicolai Howard Mork. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Police investigating non-injury fires and explosions in yards near neighborhoods where Mork has lived searched his home in December and reported finding chemicals that could be mixed to create blasts.

Prosecutor Jake Villani says evidence shows Mork committed other crimes for which he hasn't been charged.

Togliatti denied Mork's motion after watching a video that allegedly shows him hitting a woman. She called Mork the "trifecta of risk to the community."
