SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A man whose home was searched after an arson fire at an Oregon mosque has been charged with disorderly conduct in an unrelated case.

McMinnville police said Thursday they arrested 24-year-old Cody Crawford two days earlier.

McMinnville is 40 miles north of Crawford's home in Corvallis. Crawford lives near a mosque sometimes attended by the teen arrested in an FBI sting on charges of trying to bomb a Portland Christmas celebration.

Officers searched Crawford's home after the mosque's office was torched Nov. 28. There have been no arrests in the arson.

The McMinnville News-Register quoted police as saying Crawford shined a light into a car and the security camera at a gas station and banged a phone on the counter at a video store. He was arraigned Wednesday in Yamhill County Circuit Court on one count of disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

He has been released on bail.
