Seized firecrackers destroyed in Cagayan
TUGUEGARAO CITY — Authorities here on Sunday destroyed assorted firecrackers and other pyrotechnic devices that were surrendered and seized during the New Year celebration.
Police Brig. Gen. Crizaldo Nieves, Cagayan Valley regional director, led police and firefighters in hosing down the firecrackers so these could no longer be used after disposal.
Destroyed were illegal firecrackers such as “Piccolo,” “One Star,” “Happy Balls,” “Higad,” “Pill Box,” “Judas Belt,” “Missile Shot,” “Paper Cups,” “Five Star,” “Pop Pop” and “Balls.” These were seized in separate operations throughout the region.
“As we have observed, more than the excitement for the holiday season was our concern for everybody’s welfare,” Nieves said.
