 • Two central Iowa men charged with violent threats at Pokemon convention to be held without bail for four months.

 The two central Iowa men charged with making online threats of violence at a Pokémon convention in Boston last month have been held without the right to bail for at least four months. A Boston judge Tuesday morning ruled that 18 year old Kevin Norton of Ames and 27 year old James Stumbo of Boone pose a danger to society. Prosecutors say the two men made social threats against at least one competitor at the World Pokémon Championships. Police said they found a 12 gauge shotgun, an AR-15 rifle and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in their car. Defense attorneys argued that there was no evidence the defendants planned to carry through on any threats. The judge in his ruling said their online postings were not "just kids' stuff on the computer".
