TERRY, Miss. — A 6-Wheeler used to help the Terry Volunteer Fire Department fight grass fires has been stolen for the second time.

Hinds County Emergency Management Director Ricky Moore, who oversees volunteer fire departments in Hinds County, said the Polaris ATV was stolen when someone broke the lock on the door of the Terry Volunteer Fire Department storage building on Tank Road. "We housed it there to use when we have a grass fire and we can take it anywhere when there is a search for a lost person," Moore said of the ATV.

Moore said the cost of the ATV is about $13,000. It's the same vehicle that was stolen about four years ago form the volunteer fire department storage building. The ATV and other equipment were recovered in May 2010 after it was found in an area not far from the station.
