    CA - Authorities hunt homeless man in synagogue bombing

    Investigators hunting for homeless man in connection with blast at Santa Monica synagogue
    Police are hunting for a disturbed homeless man in connection with a large explosion at a California synagogue.

    Investigators initially thought the blast at Chabad House Lubavitch of Santa Monica Thursday, which sent a huge chunk of concrete and large pipe flying 25 feet into the air, was an industrial accident.

    Now, Jewish organizations are being urged to stay vigilant as cops search for 60-year-old Ron Hirsch, who is wanted on state charges of possession of a destructive device, police said.

    Seeks charity at synagogues then blows them up?

    Suspect Arrested!

    A suspect in the blast outside a California synagogue last week has been arrested in Ohio, a source told Fox News, after an FBI alert said the man had fled east.

    The suspect, a 60-year-old transient named Ron Hirsch, is said to have boarded a New York-bound bus on Thursday, the day of the incident, the FBI said. He is wanted in connection to the explosion near Chabad House Lubavitch of Santa Monica.

    A source familiar with the investigation said Hirsch was arrested in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, but no other information about the arrest was available.
