Thieves steal TV from firehouse while crew's on call

While responding to a medical call, thieves snuck into their station to steal the television

By FireRescue1 Staff

INDIANAPOLIS — While Indianapolis firefighters were responding to a medical call, thieves snuck into their firehouse and stole a television.

Late Tuesday night, crews left the station, and officials say they believe people were waiting for firefighters to leave so they could sneak in and steal the TV, according to WishTV.

Other personnel were in the building at the time of the theft, but were asleep. The thieves had left the firehouse before crew was able to park the truck.

One of the suspects has been described as a petite white female, a 6-foot-tall black male, and 6-foot-tall white male.
