BANGOR — A Connecticut man has pleaded guilty to charges in connection with a Molotov cocktail attack on a Maine home.

Alex Glossian of Meriden, Conn. pleaded guilty in federal court in Bangor on Wednesday to possession of an unregistered destructive device.

Prosecutors say the 25-year-old Glossian and another person made Molotov cocktails out of 40-ounce beer bottles and gasoline and on June 2, 2010, lit them and threw them through the window of an Indian Island home.

One ignited after shattering a bedroom window and caused extensive damage to the home. The second was recovered intact by investigators.

No one was hurt.

Glossian faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 at sentencing, which has not been scheduled.
