RCMP Reveal More Rexton Charges

A 20 year old Nova Scotia man is facing four charges after molotov cocktails were thrown at police in Rexton last October.

Earlier this week,   Aaron Francis of Eskasoni was charged in Moncton court with intent to do bodily harm by causing an explosive device to explode and another charge of placing or throwing at a person and some other charges.

The RCMP point out that a molotov cocktail is a homemade incendiary weapon and the Criminal Code of Canada states that anyone found guilty of an offence involving explosives can face a sentence of up to life in prison.

Francis was held in custody since the riots last fall when he was arrested for careless use of a firearm.

He is due back in court on the 17th.
