DUI, Page 4 Feds in N.J. arrest former USD student who sparked bomb scare By David Lias david.lias@plaintalk.net A former University of South Dakota student from Essex County, NJ was arrested Wednesday morning, Dec. 5, on charges related to a January 2012 bomb scare in Coyote Village, a student housing complex on the USD campus. Anthony Nicholas Gallo, 20, has been charged with transportation of explosive materials without a license or permit issued by the U.S. Attorney General. He appeared Dec. 5 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Falk in Newark, NJ federal court. Court appearance The Associated Press reported Dec. 5 that during Gallo's first appearance in a Newark federal courtroom that afternoon, attorney Steven Martino said Gallo did not pose a danger to anyone and questioned why, if he had posed a serious threat, federal authorities waited 10 months to arrest him. "Anthony is a good kid, and we'll show what they (the government) are portraying him as is not what he is," Martino said. Joyce Malliet, an assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, argued for keeping Gallo in custody, saying he was seemingly obsessed with building and detonating explosives and had bragged in graphic detail on Facebook about his alleged exploits. U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Falk said he didn't have enough information on the case to make a decision, and ordered Gallo to remain in federal custody until a custody hearing could be held llion Public rmi ols Notice: Ve ho Sc Friday. Gallo, handcuffed and smiling at his parents in court, didn't speak other than to acknowledge to the judge that he understood his rights.

According to the complaint, on Jan. 8, 2012, Gallo traveled to Pennsylvania with potassium chlorate and magnesium in a PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipe, planning to cause an explosion. According to a release from Matthew Reilly, public affairs officer of the U.S. Attorney in the District of New Jersey, Gallo never applied for the requisite user permit or Reminder: 2nd Semester Bus Passes are due before Monday, January 7, 2013.

On Jan. 19, 2012, Gallo was admitted to the emergency room of a hospital in New Jersey for burn injuries from another potassium chlorate explosion.
