Rogers was appointed a federal defender.U.S. Magistrate Judge Tony Leung ordered him held pending a detention hearing Wednesday because of the ``serious concerns'' raised in the criminal complaint.

Rogers wore a green construction company T-shirt, jeans and work boots. He answered ``yes, sir'' and ``no, sir'' to the judge's questions.

Authorities say they seized Molotov cocktails, suspected pipe bombs and firearms in the raid on a mobile home.
