    A New York man was arrested after authorities say he was driving through Massachusetts with fireworks, which are illegal in the state.

    State police say they stopped a vehicle driven by Ralph Green, of New Rochelle, just before 8 p.m. Friday on Interstate 84 in Sturbridge.

    Police say the 38-year-old Green has a suspended license and was driving a leased vehicle he wasn't authorized to drive.

    A search of the vehicle turned up 86 different fireworks in the trunk and $4,700 in cash.

    Police allege Green was bringing the fireworks back to New York to sell them.

    Green is being held on bail. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer who could comment.

    State police say it's illegal to bring fireworks into Massachusetts, even if they were purchased legally elsewhere.
