JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — One of three men arrested on charges of plotting to help the ISIS group wage war against the U.S. is scheduled to appear in a Florida courtroom for a detention hearing.

Abror Habibov was arrested in Jacksonville last week and charged with attempt and conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist organization.

The 30-year-old Habibov ran cellphone repair kiosks at malls in Virginia, Florida and Georgia, and federal prosecutors say he helped fund 19-year-old Akhror Saidakhmetov’s efforts to join ISIS in Syria.

Saidakhmetov and another man, 24-year-old Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, were arrested in Brooklyn.

Habibov, a native of Uzbekistan, is held without bail in Florida.
