Police: Arrest made in DA's office bombing

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. -- Authorities say they have arrested a man they believe tried to bomb the Jackson County District Attorney's office in Medford last week.

KTVL News in Medford is reporting that officials arrested Alan Leroy McVay, and charged him with first degree arson, first degree burglary and unlawful manufacturing and possession of a destructive device.

Police say McVay, 46, was arrested on Wednesday at Bobbio's Pizza in White City.

Medford police are not releasing a motive at this time, as the investigation is ongoing.

Medford Police Chief Tim George said he considered the explosion a domestic terror attack aimed at law enforcement.

Dozens of federal investigators specializing in bomb attacks from around the Northwest gathered to help sift through the evidence left when the device partially detonated in front of the building.

No one was injured in the blast.

Police said a 5-gallon propane tank similar to what someone might use in a gas barbecue was apparently part of the device, but didn't explode.

If it had, the blast might have destroyed the one-story brick building.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
