The detention hearing for white supremacist Robert joos of McDonald County, originally scheduled for today, has been delayed until 11 a.m. Wednesday, at the request of Joos' attorney, federal public defender Ian Lewis. Joos is charged with being a convicted felon in illegal possession of firearms. He was arrested in connection with a federal investigation of a racially-motivated 2004 bombing in Scottsdale, Ariz. National white supremacist leader Dennis Mahon and his brother Daniel were charged with that crime.
ATF agents executing a search warrant on Joos' property Wednesday found bomb-making materials, according to documents filed Friday in U. S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri.
The government posted the information in its effort to prevent Joos from being released on bond.
The search uncovered "more than a dozen miscellaneous firearms," as well as "materials for constructing improved explosive devices, including blasting caps, gunpowder, and fuses."
In addition, the documents indicate, Joos provided undercover ATF agents with information on how to build a bomb.
The government wants Joos held without bond.
