Falls Church - Authorities say a man has been charged with leaving a fake bomb at a Virginia mosque.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue investigators have charged 27-year-old Chester Gore with using a hoax explosive device and entering a property to cause damage based on religious conviction.

Authorities say the fake explosive device was found on Thursday at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in the Falls Church section of Fairfax County.

Fire and rescue officials say Gore also caused $200 in damage to a fence gate.

Gore was being held on Monday at the county jail without bond.

Online records show his case has been assigned to the public defender's office, which did not immediately respond to a telephone message on Monday night.
