A 57-year-old man faces up to 40 years in prison for throwing a Molotov cocktail into an occupied liquor store.

Last May, Elvis Presley Strickland reportedly threw a flaming gasoline-filled bottle into Coda’s Liquor Store (4707 South Third), causing smoke and fire damage, according to the Shelby County District Attorney General’s office.

Strickland, a repeat offender who has six prior felony convictions, was arrested later at Shelby Drive and South Third.

Strickland was convicted of aggravated arson for the incident Thursday. The maximum sentence allowed by law for repeat felony offenders is being sought in Strickland’s case. He will be sentenced October 27th.
