Ark. doctor ordered held on weapons charges

An Arkansas doctor found with more than $1 million worth of machine guns and grenades has been denied bail as he waits for his federal trial.
U.S. Magistrate H. David Young said Tuesday that he was unconvinced Dr. Randeep Mann would remain in the country if freed on bond. The 50-year-old Mann is from India but is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
He is charged with possessing unregistered weapons.
Federal agents searching his home March 4 found 110 guns and grenades.
Young says he didn't have an accurate account of Mann's "financial wherewithal" and that the doctor has "contacts outside the country that would make it much easier ... to flee."
Mann's attorney says he may appeal the ruling. A trial date hasn't been set.
