Suspect in Anthrax, Bomb Threats to Return to Connecticut

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Federal officials say a man charged in North Dakota with sending more than 50 death, anthrax and bomb threat letters across the country will be returned to Connecticut for prosecution within the next few weeks.

Prosecutors say 43-year-old Roland Prejean, also known as Gary Gravelle, agreed to be brought back to Connecticut during a hearing Wednesday in federal court in Bismarck, N.D.

Prosecutors say Prejean, most recently of Morris and Thomaston, Conn., sent letters to individuals, judges, other officials and government buildings while driving from Connecticut to North Dakota earlier this month.

Officials say no threats were carried out, no bombs were found and a powdery substance in some letters was actually baby or talcum powder.

It’s not clear if Prejean has a lawyer.
