JOHNSTON, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island man has been arrested for allegedly having $14,000 worth of illegal fireworks.

Police say they took 37-year-old Peter St. Lawrence, of Johnston, into custody on Monday at his home on Starr Street.

Investigators say they received a tip that St. Lawrence had a stash of illegal fireworks.

They secured a warrant to search his property and say they found the fireworks in a storage shed behind his home.

St. Lawrence was arraigned Monday night and is due back in Warwick District Court in July. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
