OREGON, Ohio — Authorities plan to destroy several hundred pounds of commercial-grade fireworks seized from an Oregon home, Toledo Police reported Tuesday.

TPD and the Northwest Ohio Bomb Squad were called to assist Oregon Police with the fireworks taken earlier this year from a home in the 1600 block of Glenross Boulevard.

Officials found the fireworks at the home and seized them. Authorities took the fireworks to the Northwest Ohio Bomb Squad bunker for later disposal according to Toledo police.

The case remains under investigation by Oregon Police.
