Coon Rapids man pleads guilty in ‘Molotov cocktail’ case
A Coon Rapids man has pleaded guilty in Anoka County District Court to one of three felony charges after a “Molotov cocktail” device was found inside a Coon Rapids residence.
John Michael Udell, 23, will be sentenced Jan. 30 after entering a guilty plea to a terroristic threats charge. A second terroristic threats count as well as an explosive/incendiary device violation charge will be dismissed at sentencing, which was set at a Dec. 17, 2013 court hearing.
The early morning of April 30, 2013, Coon Rapids Police responded to a report of a possible explosive or incendiary device that had been found inside a residence on the 500 block of 112th Lane.
According to the complaint, the homeowner, a woman, awakened to find what appeared to be a “Molotov cocktail” on her couch. See more in Editor Peter Bodley’s ABC Newspapers story.
