Washington State Patrol wants ferry travelers on the Clinton-Mukilteo route to know its K-9 units will be out inspecting vehicles for fireworks this week.
The dogs are trained to detect explosives, which includes legal and illegal fireworks. A State Patrol press release said fireworks should be stored where they are easily accessible for an officer to inspect them. Illegal fireworks are not allowed on Washington State Ferries and will be confiscated.
