Suspects sought in domestic terrorism case

HAYDEN, Ariz. – On Nov. 1, 2012, at approximately 2 a.m., a large percussion sound was heard and felt inside the Hayden Police Department. A security check of the outside revealed a small flame and chemical pattern on the west wall of the Department.

The Department of Public Safety bomb squad was called to assist with the investigation and identify the explosives or incendiary device used.

The Hayden Police Department Officers gathered evidence that resulted in latent fingerprints on the glass used to deploy the devise that appears to have been a Molotov cocktail.

The evidence has been sent to the Department of Public safety lab for preservation and identification and leads are being considered.

“This is a form of domestic terrorism and because of that, the suspect or suspects will be charged federally,” said Chief of Police S.G.Gillen.

If citizens have information to assist the Hayden Police Department with this investigation, they are encouraged to contact the Department at 520-356-6205. Anonymous tips will be investigated as well.
