Charges have been reduced now for a second of the three adults and one juvenile in an attempted bomb threat against a small Islamic community.
Andrew Crysel, 18, along with Vincent Vetromile, 19, and Brian Colaneri, 20, appeared in court Thursday.
Crysel was facing six charges, including criminal possession of a weapon, attempted criminal possession of a weapon and conspiracy. The weapons charges are considered crimes of terrorism.
Back in January, the three men and a 16-year-old boy were arrested after it was discovered they were plotting an attack on Islamberg, New York, a small Muslim enclave in Delaware County. A number of IEDs were found when they were arrested.
Now the two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon were dismissed against Crysel. Those same charges against Colaneri were dropped earlier this month.
Both Crysel and Colaneri are still facing three charges of conspiracy each.
The 16-year-old defendant’s case is being heard in Youth Part Court.
