Wednesday, June 14, 2017More than 4,000 pounds of fireworks and materials to create fireworks were recovered at a residence in unincorporated Lemont, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.

At approximately 9:15 a.m. today, Sheriff’s Police responded to a domestic trouble call in the 14800 block of Kotlin Road in unincorporated Lemont. While investigating the call, officers saw what appeared to be boxes of fireworks just inside the front door.
