Spartanburg, SC -

The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft of fireworks from the Spartanburg Jaycees for the third year in a row.

According to a report obtained from the sheriff's office, a deputy responded to a location on South Church Street around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning. When they arrived, they spoke with a man who operates a fireworks stand on the property on behalf of the Jaycees.

According to the report, the man stated that sometime between 2 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, someone forced back the metal siding on the Jaycee storage trailer causing about $200 worth of damage. The suspect(s) also stole about $200 worth of fireworks from the shed.

The theft is the third time in as many years that someone has stolen fireworks from the Jaycees.

In 2011, somebody broke into the fireworks stand and stolen about $1,500 worth of fireworks. In 2012, someone stole almost $1,000 worth of fireworks where the proceeds from their annual event were set to be donated to charity.
