Abdullatif Aldosary, Casa Grande Social Security Office Bombing Suspect, Due In Arizona Court

Dec 03, 2012

The man who authorities believe is responsible for an explosion early Friday morning at a Social Security office in Arizona will face arraignment in Phoenix.

Abdullatif Aldosary, 47, of Coolidge will appear in U.S. District Court on Monday afternoon for the alleged bombing in Casa Grande, KPHO reports.

The blast, which occurred at approximately 8:30 a.m., did not cause any injuries. Police and fire officials quickly extinguished the fire.

Aldosary is likely to be slapped with multiple federal and state charges for illegal use of explosives and arson, KSAZ reports.

Swannee Welsh, a friend of Aldosary, said she finds it hard to imagine him committing such a crime. In the four years that they have lived near one another, she has known Aldosary as "friendly, laughing, smiling and cordial."

"I don't believe it, not for a minute," Welsh told ABC-15.

Welsh also said that Aldosary worked as a day laborer at the Social Security office. FBI officials searched Aldosary's house late Friday.

Court records show Aldosary served a prison sentence four years ago in an aggravated harassment case against his former employer.

In addition, he is currently facing assault and disorderly conducted charges in a separate case in Casa Grande, KPHO reports.
