Police seized 2,200 pounds of illegal fireworks Wednesday in the Waipahu area, according to a Honolulu Police Department news release.

Officers received a tip, which led them to the stash of illegal fireworks, police said.

Also, police arrested a 44-year-old Kapalama vendor on Wednesday for allegedly selling firecrackers to a plainclothes officer.

The vendor allegedly sold the fireworks to the officer, who did not present a valid permit.
