An Indio man was arrested Sunday night after police say they found 400 pounds of illegal fireworks in his car.
Officers checked an occupied vehicle parked in the parking lot of a gas station on Date Palm Drive about 9:30 pm. During their search, police discovered 1,200 illegal fireworks inside of the vehicle – including mortars, roman candles, missiles, bottle rockets, and firecrackers, according to a Facebook post.
The driver of the vehicle, Osbaldo Delgado, a 35-year-old Indio resident, was arrested for possessing the illegal fireworks, which is a felony in the State of California.
Officers also searched Delgado’s residence in Indio, where they say they found additional illegal fireworks.
