A Gretna man is accused of igniting at least two Molotov cocktails last Tuesday on the grounds of an elementary school. Sarpy County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Greg London says 22 year old Seth Chase was booked for possession of a destructive device and criminal mischief.
Around 3 am, three people were on school property when one ignited the cocktails constructed of glass bottles, gasoline and paper towels. The bottles were then thrown into the parking lot. The pavement was scorched but the building was not damaged.
Authorities reviewed footage from the school’s camera system and that led to the arrest of Chase. They say Chase admitted he was intoxicated at the time.
