If it seemed there was a lot of unauthorized fireworks this past Fourth of July, get a load of the pyrotechnics that did not make it onto the street, thanks to officers at the 106th Precinct.

Some 600 boxes of fireworks with an estimated street value of $150,000 was seized at a self-storage facility on 98th Street in Ozone Park July 3.

An anonymous tip alerted officers to the huge inventory, said PO Seth Jaffe, community affairs officer for the precinct. A man in his 30s was arrested at the same time.

Illegal fireworks are destroyed at the NYPD’s Rodman’s Neck range in the Bronx.
