Arnhem

During a check, the police found almost 1,100 kilos of illegal fireworks. The discovery was made at a carpool spot along the A12, after officers had given a suspicious van a following sign.

A 28-year-old man from Barneveld has been arrested and the fireworks confiscated. Obviously, the fireworks will be destroyed.

Earlier, a large fireworks find of about a thousand kilos was also made in the Rivierengebied. The police are fully committed to tackling (illegal) fireworks, for example with major checks. In 2020, the approach with partners such as the Public Prosecution Service and the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate resulted in a record catch: more than 122,000 kilos of seized fireworks across the country.
