INDUSTRY, Calif. (AP) — About 3,000 pounds of illegal fireworks have been seized by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies.

A Sheriff’s Department statement says the seizure was made Wednesday evening after deputies saw three men igniting what appeared to be illegal fireworks in a street in the unincorporated Valinda area near the city of Industry.

The men were arrested and during the investigation the deputies spotted numerous boxes of fireworks in an open residential garage.

The department says a search warrant was then served, and the seized fireworks were turned over to county Fire Department.

The names of the men have not been released because the investigation is continuing.
