Santa Monica Chabad Bombing Suspect Arrested In Ohio

From The Los Angeles Times:

A man suspected in the explosion last week next to a Santa Monica synagogue was arrested in Ohio late Monday after someone noticed him at another synagogue in Cleveland Heights.

Sources told the Los Angeles Times that Ron Hirsch, 60, was arrested near a Chabad House in the Ohio city. He is accused of setting off a large explosive device at the Santa Monica Chabad House on Thursday.

The FBI said Hirsch fled Los Angeles on a Greyhound bus after the explosion. He was believed headed to New York, where he has relatives. But authorities said Hirsch may have gotten off the bus elsewhere.

On Monday afternoon, the FBI released images from a surveillance camera at a Greyhound station in Denver, which showed Hirsch walking through the building and standing at a counter.
