Sometime over the past week unknown person(s) have been experimenting with Molotov
cocktails behind the former St. Gabriel's School on Parish Street in St. Thomas,
ON. This type of incident is extremely dangerous and could prove to be fatal if
thrown at people or houses.
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. Residents who live in the area are asked to help keep
an eye on the school and put an end to this dangerous behaviour. Another large fire
is not what this community needs.
Anyone with information about this incident or who witnessed similar behaviours,
are being asked to contact the St. Thomas Police Service.
