Three Arrested, Over 5,000 Pounds of Illegal Fireworks Confiscated in North Long Beach

Release Date: 2017-06-28

More than 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks were confiscated and three people were arrested Monday night after an anonymous tip led authorities to a makeshift storefront set up in a garage at a North Long Beach home.

During a news conference Tuesday afternoon that displayed some of the confiscated fireworks outside the Long Beach Fire Department (LBFD) headquarters, Police Chief Robert Luna told media outlets that police encountered the fireworks when they served a search warrant at about 8:00PM at a residence in the 1800 block of East 57th Street.
