A Stratford man is accused of possessing illegal fireworks and faces weapons charges after a motor vehicle stop Tuesday morning in Fairfield.
Adam Litzie, 29, of Coolidge Street, was pulled over for allegedly driving 40 mph in a 25-mph zone on Old Post Road around 6 a.m. on Tuesday, according to the Connecticut Post.
During the stop, a hatchet, illegal fireworks, as well as fireworks that are classified as explosives by the ATF and require a permit, were found in the car, according to the Connecticut Post.
Litzie was arrested on charges of illegal possession of explosives, possession of fireworks, and two counts of weapons in a motor vehicle. He was held on $5,000 bond and taken to Bridgeport Superior Court for arraignment later that day.
