(DETROIT) -- Thirty-two cases of commercial grade fireworks were reported missing and are believed to be stolen from a train shipment that originated in Chicago and ended in Detroit, a senior law enforcement official told ABC News Friday.
The train transited through Ohio, where officials believe the fireworks may have been stolen. The discovery that the fireworks were missing was made Thursday and was reported to authorities.
The cases include 2.5-inch and 5-inch aerial commercial grade fireworks, which is the kind used in public fireworks displays, officials said.
These commercial grade fireworks could be very dangerous in the wrong hands, the source said.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has established a tip line out of its Detroit Field Division that is handling the case. The number for the tip line is (313) 202-3400.
