Police arrest sex offender with Molotov cocktails at Roosevelt soup kitchen
A Level 3 sex offender was arrested for allegedly carrying two Molotov cocktails into a Roosevelt soup kitchen. Police say 31-year-old Kieth Pendarvis, of Roosevelt, went to the Harvest of the World Soup Kitchen on Pleasant Avenue Monday with the explosives in his bag. Joanna Bell-Richards, who runs the soup kitchen, says the bag was leaking gasoline. According to police, when she opened it she found the explosives. Pendarvis was supposed to be arraigned on weapons charges and for failing to register as a sex offender Tuesday. That hearing, however, was delayed so he could undergo a psychological evaluation at Nassau University Medical Center.
