LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln police say they’ve arrested two southeast Nebraska men on suspicion of selling homemade fireworks.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/29dYHeV ) that the two Firth men, ages 38 and 34, were arrested and jailed Wednesday after police were initially called to investigate a possible drug deal.

Police say the 38-year-old sold 40 fireworks for $4 each to another person in the Lincoln Airport Authority parking lot Wednesday afternoon.

During the course of the investigation, police talked to the seller’s neighbor and searched his garage, finding fuses, powder, bottle rockets and nearly 20 homemade fireworks.
