MEDFORD, Ore. A suspect has been arrested in the bombing of the Jackson County District Attorney s Office earlier this month, police confirmed Thursday.

Alan Leroy McVay, 46, was arrested Wednesday outside a pizza restaurant in White City. Police said he did not resist arrest.

McVay was lodged in the Jackson County Jail and his bail was set at $1 million bail. He faces several charges, including arson, burglary, unlawful manufacture and possession of a destructive device, and criminal mischief.

He will be arraigned in Jackson County Circuit Court Thursday afternoon and the case will be presented to the grand jury next week.

Bombing described as 'domestic terrorism'

The explosion occurred in the early morning hours of November 13. Investigators said someone detonated a propane tank and it caught fire.

No one was inside the building at the time and there were no injuries.

Police called the bombing an act of domestic terrorism.

Damage was mostly on the exterior of the building, and had the tank fully detonated, it likely would have caused a lot more destruction, said said Lt. Mike Budreau with the Medford Police Department.

More than 25 investigators from local and federal agencies were working the case.

McVay is also facing other charges unrelated to the bombing, according to District Attorney Beth Heckert, but she did not elaborate on exactly what those charges were.
