South Queens’ Finest last week touted the fruits of their labor—and the Neighborhood Policing program—after an Ozone Park pyrotechnics bust netted hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal fireworks.
Last Wednesday night, hours before Independence Day, 106th Precinct Special Operations officers followed up on an anonymous tip noting an enormous “array of fireworks” being stored in a garage on 98th Street, Community Affairs Officer Seth Jaffe told The Forum on Monday.
Investigators confiscated 600 boxes containing an assortment of entertainment explosives with a combined street value of more than $150,000.
The owner of the property was arrested and booked on site.
