Friday, July 3, 2015 — COOK COUNTY, IL – A Chicago man has been arrested after Cook County Sheriff’s Police seized approximately 1,900 pounds of illegal fireworks, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

Vincent Saraceno, 36, was arrested Thursday morning after Sheriff’s Police found him selling illegal fireworks from a tent in a parking lot located in the 900 block of W. North Avenue in Melrose Park.

Saraceno was charged with possession/sale/use of fireworks, a misdemeanor.

The fireworks recovered are a mass detonation hazard. If one inadvertently detonates, the explosion detonates the others.

These types of fireworks should only be handled by licensed professionals.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
