Police don't believe multiple, intentionally-set fires inside the Trump International Hotel just off the Las Vegas Strip were politically motivated.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, Roger Fraley, 28, was arrested at the hotel property Wednesday afternoon after officers responded to reports of an arson.


Citing an investigation, police said paper products and towels were inside two toasters found in the women's bathroom on the pool deck of the property. Police also said two additional smoking toasters, fashioned in the similar matter, were found on the 17th floor.

A security officer received minor injuries during an attempt to hold Fraley in custody.

According to police, an exact motive remains unknown, as of Thursday, but evidence suggested the incident was not politically motivated.

Fraley was booked into Clark County Detention Center on arson and burglary counts.
