MANSFIELD, Mass. - A Massachusetts judge has increased bail for a rock band bassist from Southern California accused of robbing
prescription painkillers from a pharmacy just hours before a show.

Attleboro police say Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd showed a Walgreens pharmacist a note on his phone Sunday
afternoon, saying he had a bomb.

Police say the 30-year-old Todd of Anaheim, Calif., fled with
six bottles of Oxycontin, taking a cab to the Comcast Center in
Mansfield, where his band was to open for Soundgarden that night.

He was arrested before the show, and the band played without him.

An Attleboro District Court judge on Monday increased bail from
$10,000 cash to $25,000 cash, citing Todd's out-of-state address
and criminal record, including a previous drug conviction.

Todd's attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment.
