Video: Ohio police explode seized fireworks

Last Friday, more than $37,000 worth of illegal fireworks were confiscated from a Cleveland home

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police departments throughout the area are seizing and destroying tons of illegal fireworks. The planned explosions are necessary for law enforcement to keep the illegal fireworks off the streets.

Last Friday, more than $37,000 worth of illegal fireworks were confiscated from a Cleveland home.  The cache was so large, Cleveland's bomb squad decided to blow up only half of it at one time. On Tuesday, the Parma bomb squad destroyed illegal fireworks they've been seizing for the last 12 months. Commander of the Parma bomb squad, Franco Lanza, said it's a problem every year.

"Unfortunately, it's a big problem because you can buy the fireworks 1.4Gs, class Cs, you can buy them anywhere. But you have 48 hours to transport them out of the state of Ohio... Most people don't."
