Thumbs up to Clovis police for busting two individuals who allegedly stole $100,000 worth of fireworks one week before the Fourth of July. The bust came Wednesday afternoon, when police served a search warrant at a home on Ashcroft Avenue, just east of Willow Avenue. A 28-year-old man and 49-year-old woman were arrested for allegedly stealing the goods. The officers found $80,000 of the fireworks – the remaining $20,000 is as yet unaccounted for. The fireworks were allegedly stolen from a distribution warehouse. Who buys fireworks at this time of year in bulk? Nonprofit organizations, churches and youth groups hoping to earn some money for their programs. That’s particularly why the theft was so galling, and the recovery so rewarding.
