DENVER -- Officers confiscated nearly $5,000 in illegal fireworks over the weekend, the Denver Police Department said.
Police sent an undercover agent to act as a buyer. When fireworks were located, police moved in and found a large supply of pyrotechnics in a back room of the house.
Fireworks are illegal in the city and county of Denver. Anyone caught using or selling fireworks could be fined up to $999 and/or jailed for one year.
There are some locations outside of Denver where fireworks are legal.
