    A 28-year-old Vermont man has pleaded not guilty to charges he kept about a dozen Molotov cocktails inside his apartment in Colchester.

    Ethan Kvasnak entered the pleas Monday in Chittenden County Court to three felony charges of possession of a destructive device and a misdemeanor count of unlawful mischief.

    Police were called to Kvasnak's apartment around 2 a.m. Monday after a neighbor reported that he slammed a golf club through a shared wall.

    Police say officers detected a strong odor of gasoline at the scene and Kvasnak told them about the Molotov cocktails inside. The building was evacuated following the discovery.

    Kvasnak was ordered held and is expected to undergo psychiatric evaluations for competency and sanity.

    Kvasnak's father says his son is schizophrenic and he needs help.
