Coheed And Cambria bassist Michael Todd has been released on $25,000 bail, following his arrest for armed robbery and unlawful possession of prescription drugs earlier this month.

As previously reported, shortly before the band were due to support Soundgarden at the Comcast Center in Attleboro, Todd entered a pharmacy and showed the pharmacist a note on his mobile phone which said he had a bomb, and that he’d detonate it if he wasn’t given several bottles of the painkiller tablet Oxycontin. He fled in a taxi with six bottles of the pills, but was later arrested after being identified by the pharmacist and the taxi driver on CCTV footage of the robbery.

The band distanced themselves from the bassist following his arrest, saying in a statement that they would continue their US tour with a replacement.

Todd is now due back in court on 9 Aug.
