A judge reduced bail for Collin McKenzie-Gude, 18, to $750,000 after hearing arguments for keeping it as $1 million, The Washington Post reported.
McKenzie-Gude has been charged with making and possessing a destructive device. He also allegedly had assault rifles in his bedroom in Bethesda.
Montgomery County Assistant State's Attorney Peter Feeney said that police also found instructions on killing someone at a distance of 600 feet and fake identification that described McKenzie-Gude as a CIA employee and a government contractor. He also allegedly had a list of teachers at his alma mater, St. John's College High School in Washington, and their addresses.
McKenzie-Gude's father, Joe Gude, has been charged with buying weapons for his son. A 17-year-old Gaithersburg boy is charged as a juvenile.
