January 2, 1987
- Police are probing the New Year's Eve firebombing of the home
owned by Sam Deluca, an official with the Laborers International
Union of North America.
Deluca was not home when a molotov cocktail
was hurled into the basement window of his house, but police say
his 21-year old daughter Sandra was in bed reading when she heard
breaking glass just before midnight.
Shortly afterwards she saw smoke rising from
the basement stairwell and called the police and fire departments.
Deluca, president of Local 837 of the union, said he was not interested
in discussing the incident when contacted by The Star.
