MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The man who police say threw a Moltov cocktail at a Myrtle Beach motel has been extradited to South Carolina.

Jonathan Scott Jordan, 32, was booked in the Myrtle Beach Jail Thursday morning, online records show.

In April, police responded to the White Sands Motel at 708 North Kings Highway. Witnesses on the scene told police a pair of suspects in a gold Buick Lasabre threw a Molotov cocktail in the motel’s parking lot, starting a fire.

Jordan and a second suspect, 34-year-old Ashley Rae Konen, were arrested in Charlotte days later and placed in the Mecklenburg County Detention Center. Both Jordan and Konen are from Iowa.

There were no injuries or damage reported.
