posted by Randall

Illegal fireworks Seven people have been charged for possession or sale of fireworks as part of a crackdown mostly in the Los Angeles Chinatown and Santee areas, reports NBC LA (file photo from CPSC).

“As important as the arrests and subsequent prosecution are, what’s most important from our effort is to send a very strong message that deters the sale in the first place,” said Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer.

More than 2,000 pounds of fireworks have been confiscated in recent days.

In all, more than 23 tons of fireworks have been seized in the greater Los Angeles area.
