HACKENSACK - A Lodi man accused of two recent firebombings at Bergen County synagogues now faces additional charges after being implicated in a third plot.
The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office says Anthony Graziano, 19, is facing additional charges of aggravated arson and bias intimidation for a similar plot against the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Paramus.
The prosecutor's office says explosives were found near the JCC during a sweep of the area following Graziano's arrest. Prosecutor John Molinelli says surveillance video from the JCC shows Graziano with a backpack outside the synagogue at around 2:15 a.m. back on Jan. 7.
Graziano faces up to 95 years in prison. AP wires contributed to this report.
