During the Fourth of July, backyard fireworks are easy to conceal. Not so much in the middle of October.
A Twinsburg police officer was driving down Ravenna Road when he saw fireworks coming from the 9800 block. Officers had gotten several complaints of fireworks in that area earlier in the evening.
He stopped at a home with a group in the backyard and talked with the 53-year-old homeowner.
The man denied shooting any fireworks off, saying he had no fireworks in his possession. However, the officer reported seeing a mortar tube about 20 feet away.
After receiving several complaints in the past, police were able to cross reference the fireworks to a neighboring home. Police reported they believed the person at that home was present at the party.
The party's host would neither "confirm or deny" his neighbor was the one setting off the fireworks and was given a written warning.
