• Police are investigating a fire started by a Molotov cocktail at the St. Charles water well house on the 2900 block of North Fifth Avenue. Police found the east side light of the well house was broken and the fire started on the pavement parking area to the east of the building. A police report indicates the fire was apparently started by a beer bottle stuffed with cotton and what appeared to be gasoline. Police collected the pieces of the beer bottle and what was left of the cotton material for evidence and took photographs of the scene. Police interviews with neighbors showed residents were aware juveniles had been hanging out at the well house in the past and apparently gain access to the site through an adjacent golf course.

Security detained Perez as he attempted to leave the store. The boots were valued at about $65. A police report indicates Perez was found with about $200 in his wallet when they transported him to the police station for booking.
