Wareham Police seized a large quantity of fireworks after receiving multiple complaints on Wednesday, Aug. 2 from residents at the Woods at Wareham complex.

Officers Eric Machado and Blaise Lalli responded to the area around 7:30 p.m. Upon arrival, Machado and Lalli found the parking lot of the complex covered with spent fireworks casings.

Following an investigation, police said the officers later confiscated a large amount of fireworks from a car found in the lot.

Danilson Pires-Brito, 30, of West Wareham is now being summoned to court for the charge of illegal possession of fireworks.

Massachusetts is one of four states with a full fireworks ban. If convicted, Pires-Brito could be fined up to $100.

Fireworks of any kind have no business at a densely populated place like the Woods of Wareham.  People are everywhere, there are tons of cars, and there are wood framed apartment buildings all over.  We are in a drought.  That's just simply dangerous!  He was wrong for having this stuff there.  He was wrong for lighting it off there.


However,  what's pictured is just a large amount of really poor fireworks.  Its kid crap.  Not even can it be considered amature fireworks.  I'll call it novelty grade at best.  Anyone that knows anything about fireworks can see that.  The only thing worthwhile is that cake called Battle of Ft Sumter shown lower left.  Otherwise I see stuff like lame firecrackers, lame smoke bombs, some lame fountains.  This is the same stuff we ran all over Swifts Beach with when we were kids in the 80s.  Holding it in our hands while lighting it.  No helmets and eating peanut butter sandwiches at the same time.


This dude got busted with a bunch of garbage.  With the buy 1 get 3 specials up in NH this time of year, everything pictured isn't worth the $100 fine.

So glad our Acting Chief enforced the "No Fireworks" law!!  Other neighborhoods have the same problems.  I asked last year and year before that to please have an officer drive thru my neighborhood to show that fireworks were not allowed, got the response in person, "they should take them down to the beach like we did", now is that right??  NO!    Thank you Chief Walcek!!

Thank you wareham police and the new chief for cracking down on the criminals in town and thank you wareham week for posting their pictures. I am so glad people who shoot off firewoeks will be arrested and fined I wish the fine was higher. Who determines the amount of the fine?

Thank you Chief. It’a been nice being able to sleep without being woken up by fireworks at 12 am.

So happy they got this one and if I can ever figure out who is blowing stuff off off Main St and Papermill I will call WPD as well.

I am so tired of hearing all this at all times of night and to top it off it scares the hell out of my already anxious dog. I feel so bad for him he starts to shake and almost looks like he's going to have a nervous breakdown :-(
