Gardena Police Make Record Fireworks Seizure

GARDENA (CNS) –  The Gardena Police Department has announced it has made the largest single seizure of illegal fireworks in recent California history, and will provide more details Wednesday during a news conference at 11 a.m.

The police on Friday seized over 75 tons of illegal fireworks, more than doubling the previous record of 32 tons seized in a South Los Angeles warehouse in 2021.

Special Investigations Unit personnel responded to a commercial warehouse in the 17000 block of Vermont Avenue, near 170th Street, on Friday, when they discovered the fireworks which have an estimated street value of approximately $7 million to $10 million, Gardena Police Department Lt. David Brock said.

Investigators identified the three suspects connected to the illegal fireworks discovery as 44-year-old Alejandro Rodriguez of Wilmington, 30-year- old Natalie Navarro of Carson, and 25-year-old Daniel Gudino of Wilmington, who were all arrested and booked on suspicion of possession of explosives and other various weapons violation offenses.

Anyone with information related to the seizure of fireworks was urged to call Gardena Police Department Special Investigation Unit Detective Joe Martinez at 310-217-6193.
