— Cary police said that charges are pending against a homeowner in whose shed a bomb squad found pyrotechnics Tuesday evening.

A neighbor saw the fireworks in the shed and called police, Capt. Mike Williams said. A bomb squad removed pyrotechnics and materials used to make pyrotechnics from the shed at 106 Empire Circle.

The homeowner, who was out of town, had an expired pyrotechnics license, Williams said.

The fireworks were turned over to federal authorities, who declined to press charges, he said. Cary police were still conducting interviews Wednesday morning.

    I hate the fact that one can so quickly get so much info about a person's property off of the internet. I understand that it's public info., but why is it public info??

    I feel that if a person wants to know how much a person's home cost, see pictures of it, know the sqft, etc then they should at least have to get off of their lazy behinds, get in their car, spend their gas money, and drive to that persons house & aks them for all of this info or go to that office and look it up. This info is mainly used by nosey losers who want to know things that is of no benefit to them other than to satisfy there curiosity.

    I hope the neighbor faces charges of not excersizing common decency. This is why C.A.R.Y. has the reputation it does.

    I hope this is not a big waste of resources for a few firecrackers.

    The identity of the property owner took me less than 1 minute to get from tax records.

    I got their name, date of purchase, price of purchase, acreage, and all that. It's not that hard.
    Exactly. Wasnt hard to find the information.

    cth1, just go to the county web site. All the information is a public record.


    It is not too hard to figure out how to use the link.s

    This story needs more information. I'm specifically interested in why a search warrant was issued.

    Death - It depends on what class of fireworks it is and how much. 1.3g is very dangerous if stored or handled improperly. If he was making fireworks, who knows if he knew what he was doing, did he have his ATF license? etc ... A shed is definitely not how you want to store 1.3g level fireworks.

    Even the experts have had tragic accidents which led to all these very sensible rules which the industry wrote themselves and was adopted by the government. (and I'm not talking about Ocracoke either)
