Deputies found 150 boxes filled with highly dangerous fireworks like skyrockets and mortars inside a home on East 124th Street. The 8,000 pounds of fireworks were worth an estimated $20,000.

Deputies also recovered guns and about $10,000 in cash. They arrested Aaron Piggee, who owns the home. He now faces several charges.
