    Federal agents seized five pounds of C-4 military explosives from the Colorado home of a man accused with a Navy SEAL and a Las Vegas associate of smuggling machine guns from Iraq into the U.S. for sale and shipment to Mexico, authorities said Thursday. 

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A Navy SEAL accused of smuggling weapons from Iraq will remain in custody in San Diego pending an appeal on a judge's decision to grant him bail.

The federal magistrate on Friday ordered bond set at $150,000 for Nicholas Bickle, but he later granted prosecutors' request to stay the decision while they appeal.

Magistrate William Gallo said he was willing to take a chance on Bickle after a Navy commander and other officers appeared in court to support the decorated war hero.

Prosecutors argued Bickle is a dangerous flight risk and should be held without bail.

Bickle is accused of conspiring with a Colorado man and a Las Vegas associate to smuggle and sell rifles and handguns to an undercover federal agent. The agent claimed they would be shipped to Mexico.
