YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Two people were arrested July 4 for allegedly having illegal fireworks.

Police went to the house at 9:30 p.m. after receiving calls from several residents in the area who said fireworks were being exploded. He was charged with unlawfully dealing with fireworks and dangerous fireworks, a penal law violation.
Budetti was processed at the scene and issued an appearance ticket to appear in Yorktown Court on August 4 at 6 p.m.
Police said a 17-year-old Yorktown resident also on Ferncrest Drive was charged with the same violations. His name was not released because of his age.
