One For The "Dumb Criminal" File?

Police in Maine say seven teens and young adults have been arrested after a video was posted on YouTube that showed them setting off Molotov cocktails inside a vacated building and then rolled credits naming those involved.

Waterville police say the suspects, who range in ages from 14 to 20, broke into in a former Boys and Girls Club through a window.

Police seized the YouTube video showing the group making and throwing the devices, which exploded and caused flames as high as 20 feet.

Police say the video, which has since been taken off the video-sharing Web site, showed the faces of the suspects as well as text naming those pictured. Each is charged with arson and burglary.
