Fire chief's stolen car found, firefighting equipment missing
Firefighting gear, a dispatch radio and laptop holding lesson plans and other documents related to the department are missing
OWOSSO, Mich. — Rick Beeler says he left his car running at an Owosso gas station when he ran inside to pick up a cappuccino.
His car was gone by the time he got back. A thief was captured on the Speedway's security cameras Sunday, Feb. 8, about 10:40 p.m., getting in the car and speeding off.
The cashier called 911 and reported the Crown Victoria stolen. Beeler, assistant fire chief at the Tri-Township Fire Department in southern Saginaw County, said investigators sent a signal to the car's dispatch radio, which Beeler uses to alert him of fire calls, and determined the car was still in Shiawassee County.
