AKRON Anthony Fernwalt remained in jail under federal charges Thursday.

The 50-year-old Kilgore man is accused of transferring, making or having false IDs, a federal offense.

FBI agents descended on his property Tuesday after CNN and the Fox News Network forwarded them e-mails from a man identifying himself as Tony Black, a Muslim who had converted to Christianity.

Black claimed Fernwalt, under the alias Waine Coxall, brought him into this country and was smuggling in other terrorists for a planned chemical attack using sarin gas.

We have not substantiated that anybody has ever actually been smuggled into this country by Mr. Fernwalt, said Mitchell J. Marrone, agent-in-charge of the FBIs Canton office.

Fernwalt turned himself in to Jefferson County sheriffs deputies and confessed to giving birth certificates of dead Canadians to Dr. Paramjit Singh to smuggle Pakistani and Indian nationals into the United States through Canada.

Singh, Fernwalts doctor, was arrested last month in Columbiana County on drug charges. Singhs accomplice, Jassie Singh, is in prison, convicted of taking part in a plot to assassinate an Indian leader in Louisiana.
