Fireworks possession brings arrests

Posted by wlpo on July 5, 2015

   Were you watching the fireworks in your community? Some shooting fireworks off Saturday night saw lights resembling those seen on police cars.

Adam Poutre’s fireworks got poor reviews and the sheriff’s office heard about them. The 36-year old Poutre of Ottawa was arrested after 9pm Saturday night for violating the pyrotechnic use act. He went to the county jail.

People with fireworks in LaSalle revealed themselves enough for the LaSalle police to step in over the weekend. Charged with possession of illegal fireworks Sunday morning was 50-year old Elias Vasquez. Saturday night, Donald Billings and Saturday morning,  74-year old Scott Lehman was charged for setting off fireworks at the entrance to the LaSalle Police station. All arrested were from LaSalle and given notices to appear.
