The molotov cocktail requires little in the way of specialized components. That said, one New York City scumbag has apparently singled out Starbucks Frappuccino bottles as tops when it comes to vessels of arson.
The Wall Street Journalreports that NYC police are hunting for a serial arsonist who's thrown the homemade incendiary devices (at least three of which were in Frappuccino bottles) at a deli, a mosque and the houses of both a Hindu priest and Christians.
The first homemade firebomb was thrown Sunday just before 8 p.m., when a man walked into a deli on Hillside Avenue with a bottle in his hand. He lit the fuse and tossed it toward the counter, police said.
. . . "No matter what motivation was of the individual...his actions stand in stark contrast to the New York City of today that we've built together," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement.
A surveillance video showing one of the attacks was posted to Gothamist.
Police have also released the sketch below of who they believe to be the suspect.
As much as the arsonist seems to be endorsing the Frappuccino as the superior molotov container, the fact that none of the four fire bombings he's suspected of have caused major damage, facts seem to suggest that his faith is unfounded.
