Five people were injured and several cars were damaged in an explosion following police attempts to safely detonate illegal fireworks in South Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
Police arrested the suspect and discovered about 3,000 pounds of fireworks at a residence in the 2700 block of East 27th Street, near San Pedro Street.
The suspect’s name was not released, and it was not immediately clear what led up to the bust. A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the incident, but had no further immediate information.
