Police Dispose of 20,000 Pounds of Seized Fireworks in a Spectacular Fashion

The Midland Police Department in Midland, Texas joined the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives by detonating some 20,000 pounds of seized fireworks. The disposal took three and a half days, executed in large, smokey, spectacular groups.

This disposal was very informative for our bomb techs who are charged with handling explosives. Also, this was done during the day because it was not meant to be a fireworks show.
