Rural Missouri Man Arrested with Molotov Cocktail (Wha?)

Who knew rural Missouri was a hotbed of bomb-throwing radicalism?

Yeah, no. But according to the News-Leader, a guy down in Greene County (southwest of Springfield) just got nabbed for stealing a car, in which car authorities found a molotov cocktail.

Best quote from police:
"I've been on the force 17 years and it's the first one I've seen," said Greene County deputy Sgt. Christian Conrad.
But what, oh what, was Theodore Lane (a 31-year-old resident of Aurora) gonna do with his radical explosion-making machine? Police speculate he may've been planning to use it against the cops or to blow up his stolen vehicle.

The Daily RFT's theory: He was en route to a town hall meeting on health care.
