Firefighters in Wayne Township, Indiana think a trio of thieves waited for just the right moment to grab a TV from a firehouse. The delayed closing of the bay doors and others in the station sleeping while firefighters handled a medical call was that moment.
The incident happened at Wayne Township Fire Station 84, 7606 W. 10th St., the fire department said.
It was late Tuesday night – nearing midnight – when fire crews left the station for the medical situation. Fire officials said they believe people were waiting for firefighters to be called away so they could steal the TV. Although other personnel were in the station at the time of the crime, they were asleep.
