Thousands of Fourth of July Fireworks Stolen



    Fireworks and the 4th of July go hand in hand.

    Someone is either planning a big Fourth of July blowout this weekend, or is hoping to make a killing selling stolen fireworks.

    A vendor in the San Antonio area is reporting $170,000 worth of fireworks were stolen from a locked storage shed on his property, including an entire shipping container of items for celebrating the Fourth of July.

    Boom Fireworks owner E.J. Cheney said he has been hit twice in recent weeks at his property in Bexar County.

    Cheney said security has been tightened following the theft of the AAH-brand fireworks.
