Someone threw molotov cocktails into a Rising Sun restaurant shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday, September 25.
No one was injured and damage to Buck's was estimated at $600, Deputy State Fire Marshal Joseph Walters reported.
Early Thursday morning, volunteers from the Community Fire Company of Rising Sun responded to the restaurant at 314 East Main Street.
Walters reported that several Molotov cocktails were thrown into the bar through a window.
It is the second reported incident at Buck's within the last six days.
On September 19, Rising Sun police were called to Buck's pub after it was reported that someone from an "outlaw" motorcycle gang was in the bar wearing a motorcycle gang insignia. The chief said that owners at the bar had "taken steps to not allow outlaw insignias in the bar."
"We do not perceive it to be a problem," Police Chief Chip Peterson said of the September 19 incident at Tuesday's town meeting. "As of today, it's not the huge problem that it's rumored to be."
Investigators from the Office of the State Fire Marshal were back on the scene at Buck's later Thursday morning. DSFM Walters state that two molotov cocktails, made from glass beer bottles, were found. "They lit on fire but did not explode. The ignitable liquid in the bottles did not ignite."
About 1:45 p.m. today, Thursday, the Rising Sun Police Department issued a press release regarding this issue. Included in the press release was the following statement "...We do believe this was not a random act and that it was specifically directed to the parties involved. We ask our residents to be patient as we are aggressively pursuing any and all leads and once we have information, we will update the public."
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Office of the State Fire Marshal at 410-836-4844.
