Illegal fireworks confiscated from ice cream truck in Pittsburg
PITTSBURG, Calif. - Pittsburg police confiscated illegal fireworks from an ice cream truck over the July 4th weekend.
The police department's Facebook page credited a "concerned parent" for noticing the fireworks in the ice cream truck on Friday night.
"A stash of M-1000’s and other fireworks" were found in the truck, police said.
The ice cream truck owner was issued a citation but no arrest was made.
KTVU attempted to reach the police department for more information about the citation but did not receive a response.
The ice cream truck wasn't the only illegal bust over the holiday weekend.
For example, authorities arrested two men and seized 600 pounds of illegal fireworks from a van in Newark on Friday.
Statewide, Cal Fire reported taking nearly 80,000 pounds of illegal fireworks along the California-Nevada border between May and June.
