Authorities on Wednesday announced the arrest of arson, which destroyed most of the headquarters of the Democratic Party of Arizona and Maricopa.
According to Phoenix police, 29-year-old Matthew Egler was reserved for one number of arsonists from the occupied structure.
When accounting for documents obtained by KPNX-TV in Phoenix, police said Egler was a volunteer for the Democratic Party of Maricopa County, but was banned for behavior. Investigators say the fire was retaliation after it was recently rejected as a volunteer.
“Today’s news has deeply saddened and shocked us, but we appreciate the swift action by law enforcement agencies to ensure that the suspect is in custody,”; state and regional democracy officials said in a statement.

The message left on the cell phone number listed in Egler’s family did not return immediately. It was not immediately known whether he had a lawyer on behalf of his representative.
Police also state in the billing documents that Egler discussed the start of the fire and its “dissatisfaction” with district Democrat officials on Twitter.
A Twitter account with a “Valley Leader” handle shows several videos about a man who matches an Egler Muggle released by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and talks about a fire. The man also claims to be married to Ivanka Trump.
The fire broke out early Friday in a business district a few miles north of downtown Phoenix. Investigators said the evidence suggested it was arson.
The building is a long-term home of state and district democrats. The northern part of the building, which houses operations for Maricopa’s regional democrats, was a complete loss, said regional chairman Steven Slugocki. The damage was minor in part of the state party building, he said.
The fire destroyed computers, tablets, telephone banking equipment, campaign literature and years of information about the candidate and the organization, Slugocki said. He also burned political memorabilia accumulated over several decades, including campaign materials for John F. Kennedy.
