BISMARCK — Bond has been set at $50,000 for a University of Mary student who's accused of Facebook posts that prompted an hour-long lockdown of the Bismarck campus.

Twenty-year-old Patrick Casas must post $5,000 to be released from jail but could be made to repay the full bond amount if he doesn't follow conditions, such as not using the Internet. He's being allowed to leave the state and live in Chicago with his parents as long as he promises to return for court appearances on a felony terrorizing charge.

Authorities allege that Casas posted a threat on Facebook on Friday referring to shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007. The campus was shut down until he was arrested.

Defense attorney Robert Bolinske Jr. says his client is no longer attending the Bismarck university.
