The police seized around 400 kilograms of "heavy" fireworks during raids at two homes on Ambonstraat in Meppel on Thursday. The fireworks were confiscated and will be destroyed after investigation. Suspects are being questioned, the Meppel police said on Twitter.
A spokesperson for the police called the find "not something you see everyday", speaking to newspaper De Stentor. He could not say more about the find because he is not a fireworks expert, he said.
