PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The FBI and U.S. prosecutors are reviewing allegations against a college student from Russia who is accused of possessing bomb-making and marijuana-growing materials.

No federal charges have been filed against Vladislav Miftakhov. He remains in the prison in Pennsylvania, unable to post $500,000 bond.

Police say he had bomb-making and marijuana-growing materials in his rented bedroom.

Miftakhov doesn't have an attorney. He was arraigned Saturday.

His roommate Andrew Leff told the The Altoona Mirror newspaper Miftakhov was bored and impulsive but not dangerous.
