Desert Hot Springs family disturbance call leads to explosives arrest

Two Molotov cocktails were taken by police.

DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif. - - A family disturbance call at a Desert Hot Springs home resulted in the arrest of three people when police found a pair of Molotov cocktails inside the residence, authorities said today.
Bernadette Noriega, 49, Jesus Noriega, 28, and Mario
Vigel, 19, were arrested Monday on suspicion of possession of explosive devices, resisting arrest and child endangerment, said Desert Hot Springs Detective Christopher Tooth.
Desert Hot Springs police were called at around 4:30 p.m. Monday to a home in the 66000 block of 2nd Street. The home's occupants refused to exit the house for about 30 minutes, Tooth said.
After police established a perimeter around the home, the residents left the house and officers began a probation search of the home, where two Molotov cocktails were found in the kitchen, according to the detective.
All three people who were arrested were booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning.
