On Tuesday, June 30th CPD officers assigned to address an increase in citywide firework calls seized over $500 worth of fireworks from three men. Officers set up surveillance on Franklin Street near Nichols Street after observing several fireworks being lit shortly after 10 PM. This area near the Everett city line has been one of many “hotspots” throughout the city that is being targeted by the Chelsea Police. The three individuals will be summoned to face charges for illegal possession of fireworks.
The Chelsea Police Department along with the Chelsea Fire Department stresses that this is a public safety issue, and together we want to prevent injuries to those involved or residents, and to reduce the risk of structure fires.
Police remind the community they can report crimes or suspicious activity anonymously in various formats. Citizens can call the 24 hr “tips” line at 617-466-4880, email reports directly from the department’s website at www.chelseapolice.com or download for free the MYPD App that is compatible with both Android and Apple smartphones. All three ways are monitored and anonymous.
