A love of fireworks manufacturing has earned Ed Kiley four years in prison.

Kiley was featured in the Independent in August in "Going out with a bang." At the time, he was awaiting a court date after police searched his home for days for explosives. Authorities originally thought Kiley might be manufacturing WMDs, but the hobbyist was actually making fireworks.

Though certainly less threatening than other explosives, fireworks are dangerous and it is illegal for amateurs like Kiley to make them.

Kiley is eligible for parole in January 2015.
