MONROE — Only in Monroe.

This past Monday night around 10:15 p.m. loud booms shattered the cold night and startled residents.

The first instinct was to look out the window.

And, lo and behold, the sky was lit up like the Fourth of July.

Checking the calendar, no, it’s not July 4th, it’s April 1, the day of pranks.

A Monroe Police officer patrolling the Friedman Home area, off Route 17M behind the Jiffy Stop plaza, saw the fireworks.

Then the calls started coming in to the headquarters from concerned residents.

Sgt. Dave Conklin said the firework pranksters apparently saw the approaching police car and fled.

But they left behind a box of fireworks.

They also left a smile on most people who got a kick out of the unexpected April Fools firework show.
