We did our best to put the fireworks complaints and responses in perspective July 5.
Ada County dispatch reported 266 complaints about illegal fireworks which was almost identical to previous year’s complaints county-wide.
Boise Police tell us there was, “at least one ticket issued.” Ada deputies did not write any citations and we have not heard from Meridian.
Coppers past and present tell us it is very difficult to catch the scofflaws in the act and confide that other calls often have a higher priority response. So, by the time they arrive the illegal activity is often finished.
