PORTLAND — A Westbrook man accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail at a home pleaded guilty in federal court Friday.
Brian York, 21, entered the guilty plead for a charge of possessing an unregistered destructive device.
He is to be sentenced on Dec. 5.
York and three others threw a Molotov cocktail onto the porch of a house on East Valentine Street on Jan. 26, 2011, according to a court document filed by the government. The incident was part of an ongoing feud, according to the document.
The device was made with a liquor bottle, gasoline and a tube sock. Westbrook police turned it over to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for analysis.
