Explosive damages Okla. town's police building
THACKERVILLE, Okla. (AP) - Love County authorities say Thackerville's town hall and police department offices are closed indefinitely after a gasoline-based explosive device was thrown through a window of the building that houses both agencies.
Undersheriff Jason Bone says a Molotov cocktail was thrown into the 24-by-30 metal building about 11 p.m. Monday. The explosive caused a fire, but there are no reports of injuries.
Bone says the building also houses the community center.
Thackerville police officer Brandon Stockard said city employees are operating out of their homes and police officers are operating out of their patrol cars. He says both departments are fully functioning and no police evidence was damaged.
He says police have several leads in the case.
