Cleveland Police Second District Commander Thomas Stacho said it is one of the largest fireworks seizures anyone can remember: a garage full of explosive materials. Thankfully it never met a match.

After a citizen complaint about an illegal fireworks operation, officers made an undercover buy on the 3500 block of West 46th Street.

The suspect, a man in his 40s who police would not identify, offered an even greater supply of fireworks at a different location.

Undercover police followed him to the 8700 block of Pleasant Valley Road in Parma where they found a makeshift fireworks shop inside the garage of another man, age 77.

Police seized about $100,000 in commercial grade fireworks. Stacho says it appears the fireworks were purchased outside the area, and perhaps legally.
