AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- An ex-national guardsman charged with
impersonating a U.S. Army soldier at Fort Gordon is due back in
federal court in Augusta.

Anthony Todd Saxon is scheduled to appear for a detention
hearing Monday afternoon in U.S. District Court. Prosecutors have
said they expect to reveal more details at the hearing.

Saxon, 34, was arrested on the Army post Tuesday after military
police found him with stun grenades, a land mine, and a laser
targeting sight in his car. Prosecutors say he wore Army fatigues
and tried to pose as a master sergeant.

Court documents filed Friday said Saxon has a past felony theft
conviction. At his home, investigators seized three guns, a
silencer and training grenades. No new charges were filed.

Saxon served in the Florida National Guard from 1993 to 1994.
