DEARBORN (WWJ)  A California man has been charged with suspicion of committing a terrorist act outside a Dearborn Mosque. 

Sixty-three-year-old  Roger Stockham allegedly had a good quantity of explosive materials, including illegal fireworks , outside the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn. 

The regional director of the American Arab Anti-discrimination Committee, Imad Hamad, is grateful no one was hurt.

“It’s alarming to see any incident or any potential incident of that nature toward any mosque, temple or a church or any worship place period,” Hamad added, “It’s against our American values.”

 Roger Stockham has been charged with one count of the threat of terrorism , and possession of explosives.  He’s back in court this Friday
