Police say arrest made in bombing at prosecutors' office

 Posted: 10:05 AM November 21, 2013

Medford police have made an arrest in the Nov. 13 explosion of a bomb outside the Jackson County District Attorney's Office in Medford.

Medford Police Chief Tim George confirmed this morning that police have arrested someone in connection with the bombing, but he declined to identify the suspect or provide any further details.

The Medford Police Department has scheduled an 11 a.m. press conference to make an announcement about the case, but no further details were given.

An explosion was reported at 4:38 a.m. Nov. 13 outside the district attorney's office, 715 W. 10th St., Medford. An improvised explosive device attached to a propane tank detonated, blowing out several windows on the front of the building and awakening neighbors.

The propane tank itself failed to explode as intended, authorities said. Police roped off the surrounding area for most of the day, combing the neighborhood for evidence.

Police earlier called the bombing a case of domestic terrorism, but there has been no mention of any known motive in the case.
