Hatfield Motor Vehicle Stop Leads to Fireworks Seizure

At 6:35 PM Sunday, Trooper Phillip Jett stopped a 2019 Infiniti QX80 SUV on Route 91 southbound in Hatfield that led to an arrest and the seizure of a large amount of fireworks. The Trooper stopped the car after a random query revealed the vehicle’s insurance had been cancelled, and upon approaching the SUV observed the fireworks in plain view inside. The driver, a 22-year-old Springfield man, was operating with a suspended driver’s license, and was charged with various motor vehicle offenses and unlawful fireworks possession. The fireworks – 64 packages in all – were seized and transferred to the custody of the State Police Bomb Squad for disposal.
