FDNY Marshals arrest 2 for having $4,500 worth of illegal fireworks

Two men were arrested in Manhattan Saturday for allegedly possessing a heap of illegal fireworks, the FDNY said.

The confiscated packages were emblazoned with names including “American Badass” and “Uproar.”

Fire Marshals nabbed Anthony Quezada, 28, and Hugo Figueroa, 30, during an investigation into the aural mayhem that has plagued Gotham streets nightly this month.

Quezada and Figueroa are charged with reckless endangerment and the unlawful dealing of fireworks, the department said.

Photos released by the FDNY showed dozens of boxes of explosives in the back of a vehicle. The cache was apparently valued at $4,500, officials said.

Two men were arrested on Staten Island Tuesday for allegedly possessing a $6,000 trove of illegal fireworks, the FDNY said.

Disgusted drivers honked their car horns near Gracie Mansion Monday night to send Mayor Bill de Blasio a message regarding the pyrotechnic outlaws.

The following day, the mayor announced the formation of a task force — that doesn’t target the pyromaniacs — but focuses on suppliers and distributors of fireworks.

A whopping 8,967 gripes about the fiery racket were reported to the city’s 311 system from June 1 through June 21, compared to just 28 recorded the previous year.

The FDNY urges all New Yorkers to call 311 to anonymously report the use, delivery or sale of fireworks. If you see something dangerous, call 911.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
