CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -A 47-year old Iraqi refugee is in federal custody Saturday in connection with an explosion at a Social Security office in Casa Grande.

A source close to the investigation says he’ll likely face a litany of federal and state explosive and arson charges on Monday.

“I’m positive in my heart and my soul he had nothing to do with this,” said Swannee Welsh

Welsh believes her neighbor, Abdul Latif Aldosary is being unfairly targeted. She says he’s a refugee from Iraq.

“I’ve never seen him with a match even, he doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke, he doesn’t move, he doesn’t go to the mosque,” said Welsh.

But Saturday, federal agents were still searching Aldosary’s home at 47th Street and Lemon in Coolidge.

The 47-year old is being held in connection with an explosion at the Social Security office in Casa Grande Friday morning.

Investigators believe someone threw an explosive out a car window, causing the entry door to become blackened and charred.

The office was closed and no one was hurt but the blast shook those nearby.
