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.

    This is actually in Indianapolis, IN. Wayne Twp. is the township on the west side of Indy. Dave, you may want to change to IN instead of MI.

    Bad people are bad, and are gonna do their deeds. About the only way to prevent things like this is to post ARMED guards in every building where valuables might be placed.

    Welcome to a taste of an urbin fire department. It happens more often than you think. One stretch of time our firehouse or personnel vehicles were broken into 9 times in 5 months. Now there are fences around some of the firehouses and parking lots to slow down the crooks. Be safe out there, stay low, and Strike Da Box ! K

    one time we had a scumbag break into the firehouse and raided lockers while guys were asleep in the same room. When he got discovered, he slid the pole and ran out.
