Turlock brothers flee with explosives

Turlock police are looking for an 18-year-old man and his juvenile brother who are believed to be in possession of two home-made Molotov cocktails.

One of the boys’ parents called police when they saw Joseph Russell making the explosives from a recipe on the online edition of “The Anarchists’ Cookbook,” according to Sgt. Nino Amirfar.

Russell reportedly made two Molotov cocktails at his home in the 300 block of Monte Vista Avenue while friends and his 15-year-old brother watched.

When Russell heard his parents had called police, he and his brother fled the scene with the explosive devices.

Amirfar said police searched a field adjacent from the home and issued a warrant for the elder Russell’s arrest.
