Per St. Louis city ordinance #65824 relative to the prohibited possession and discharge of fireworks in the city of St. Louis, our officers will enforce this ordinance during the Fourth of July. Offenders will be issued summons, and fireworks will be seized.— St. Louis, MO Police (@SLMPD) June 19, 2019

Last year I watched a police cruiser stop, chat, and laugh with people that were illegally shooting fireworks. Then the police drove off as the offenders continued to shoot fireworks... So I'll believe the enforcement when I see it.— Mr. E (@kcroyalskid) June 19, 2019
