MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - An Iraq War veteran accused of stealing the identification information of hundreds of members of his former Army unit will remain in custody.
Twenty-five-year-old Keith Michael Novak appeared at a detention hearing in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis on Monday.
Defense attorney Anders Folk argued that Novak should be released, saying he is not a flight risk and that statements he's accused of making were nothing more than boasting.
FBI Special Agent Christopher Crowe testified that Novak resisted arrest and had a fully loaded semi-automatic pistol as well as brass knuckles and a folding knife.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Franklin Noel ordered that Novak remain in custody.
The case will be referred to a grand jury. Novak's next court hearing was not set.
