A suspected white supremacist who was caught three years ago with deadly bacteria was back in custody Thursday on charges that he and another man possessed anthrax, an even more lethal biological agent, "for use as a weapon." Larry W. Harris, 46, a microbiologist from Ohio, held up a vial at a hotel room here earlier this week and bragged to an associate that it contained enough anthrax to "wipe out the city," federal officials asserted in their criminal complaint.
