LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Miss. — The Alamucha and Center Ridge volunteer fire departments in Lauderdale County were burglarized over the weekend. Both had most of their equipment, besides the trucks, stolen.
It's going to make firefighting difficult for them and they're looking for solutions.
County fire coordinator Allan Dover says Lauderdale County is trying to secure funding sources to replace the equipment that was stolen from both fire stations.

Can't believe there are idiots in this world that will steal the "stuff" that could possibly save the life or property of their own family or theirselves. Hopefully these thieves will be captured and dealt with more than a slap on the wrist
