Playing with Molotov cocktails

stgabes1St. Thomas Police reported Tuesday, March 25, that sometime over the past week someone had been experimenting with Molotov cocktails behind the former St. Gabriel’s School on Parish St.

Molotov Cocktails are bottles filled with a flammable substance with a soaked cloth or rag stuffed in the top. The rag is lit and the bottle thrown, causing a small or sometimes large fireball.

Police warned of the danger inherent in such behaviour, and asked residents in the neighbourhood to keep an eye out.
