BLOTTER: Police reports published Sept. 4


Suspected Molotov cocktail extinguished

A small fire, believed to have resulted from some sort of a Molotov cocktail, was put out in Cambria early Tuesday morning.

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy said a small liquor bottle was found atop a stack of newspapers, with a twisted metal mesh used as a wick. The setup was found in the roadway on Saunders Settlement and Diller roads at about 3:30 a.m.

The deputy doused the fire with a patrol car fire extinguisher. The item did not explode and the road was cleared. Several patrol units responded to the scene, deputies said.

The resident added he has spoken to Niagara University officials in the past. The resident was urged to contact the university again.
