A 29-year-old man was arrested after 1,000 pounds of illegal fireworks were found in his Garden Grove home.

The arrest and discovery of the fireworks was the result of a monthlong investigation by the Garden Grove Police and fire departments, Garden Grove Police Department Capt. Thanh Nguyen said.

Jonathan Salgado had advertised the fireworks for sale on a variety of websites, Nguyen said.

Salgado was arrested around 4 p.m. Wednesday at his residence in the 9700 block of Dakota Avenue on suspicion of manufacturing and distributing illegal fireworks, Nguyen said.
