It’s more than two months before the Fourth of July, but Sacramento police say that a motorist was driving around Sunday morning with illegal fireworks.

Police said that about 8 a.m. Sunday they stopped Lloyd Gonzales, 24, who was driving near Blair Avenue and Freeport Boulevard, across from Executive Airport. Once stopped, they found he had illegal fireworks. The department bomb squad was called in as a precaution.

Gonzales was arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal fireworks, according to a police activity report.
