SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -

With fireworks now being legally sold in Iowa, Siouxlanders are anxious to get their hands on them, so much so, that they attempted to steal them.

A break-in at the Iowa Fireworks Co. took place over the weekend. The criminals cut a hole in the tent at the location on Gordon Drive.

However, they cut the canvas for entry but it was a regular tent and the bottom just lifts up. 

The attempted burglars were also in for another surprise.

"A tent, this tent is not a secured structure or building, fireworks don't stay in here overnight. they are locked away in a container, said Travis McDermott, Iowa Fireworks Co. 

The criminals only got away with a box of firing tubes.
