ARSONIST ROGER FRALEY AT TRUMP INTERNATIONAL HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS ARRESTED, POLICE CLAIM NOT POLITICALLY MOTIVATED
A man accused of trying to set two fires inside the Trump International Hotel on Wednesday was not “politically motivated,” according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Roger Fraley, 28, was booked Thursday into the Clark County Detention Center. He is accused of leaving two toasters filled with towels and paper products in a women’s bathroom on the pool deck and on the 17th floor of the hotel in an attempt to start fires.
….Fraley’s Facebook page lists him as the CEO of Rojay Rabbit, a business that teaches customers “stealth social matrix hacking techniques” and encourages them to “see how far the rabbit hole goes.”
( RJ ) A man was taken into custody Wednesday night after arson investigators found devices set to start two separate fires to Trump International.
The suspected arsonist is facing charges of first-degree arson and burglary, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Steve Summers said.
The fires brought more than 45 Clark County Fire Department personnel, arson investigators and Metro detectives to the hotel bearing the president’s name.
Just after 5 p.m., the Fire Department was dispatched to the hotel at 2000 Fashion Show Drive, for reports of two separate fires at the same time. Arriving firefighters found one small fire in a women’s pool deck restroom and another in the hallway of the 17th floor, the Fire Department said.
The fire on the 17th floor was extinguished by hotel security personnel and was confined to two toasters and some towels. Firefighters extinguished the fire in the restroom. The pool deck fire was also confined to two toasters and “various combustible materials,” the Fire Department said.
By 6 p.m., the Fire Department confirmed both fires were out and smoke was being cleared.
Fire Department spokesman John Steinbeck said the multiple devices were placed intentionally to start the fires.
