So said a po­lice of­fi­cer who talked about a case of on­line il­le­gal fire­works sales. One of the two sus­pects sur­named Liu told the po­lice that since June 2017 he has pur­chased over 200 boxes of il­le­gal fire­works from the other sus­pect sur­named Wang worth over 20,000 yuan ($3,176). Liu then resold the fire­works on web­sites or through WeChat at a higher price. On Jan­uary 27, the po­lice con­fis­cated over 300 boxes of il­le­gal fire­works from Wang and Liu’s car and house in Dax­ing district. Liu and Wang were put on ad­min­is­tra­tive de­ten­tion for ten days re­spec­tively on sus­pi­cion of il­le­gally stor­ing dan­ger­ous goods and il­le­gally trans­port­ing dan­ger­ous goods.
