A warning from HPD to anyone celebrating the holidays with illegal fireworks. A new law means homeowners or renters can be punished, just for having them on their property.
According to the law the fireworks don’t have to be ignited. Just having them in your house is enough for police to bust you. And depending on the amount, you can be charged with a felony.
Illegal fireworks have been a problem for years in the weeks heading into the New Years Eve celebrations. The new law is aimed at making people think twice about having them in the first place on their property.
