BRIEFLY : MOLOTOV COCKTAILS DISCOVERED IN AUTO.

Two Molotov cocktails were found in a car parked at Winnetka Avenue and Victory Boulevard Friday night, causing police to cordon off several streets next to the Pierce College Labor Day Weekend Festival, authorities said.

Police suspect the devices were placed inside the vehicle by the ex-boyfriend of its owner. Police received a call at 7:50 p.m. that vandalism had just occurred at the site and found the devices in the car when they arrived, Los Angeles Police Officer John Artes said.

A bomb squad was called to the scene, where numerous police cars were parked, while officers investigated. Further details were not available.
