In San Francisco, 29-year-old Eric Miller was arrested after being found inside a fire station Monday, wearing a female firefighter’s clothes. He’s been charged with burglary and possession of stolen property. A firefighter coming on duty was the first to spot Miller and at first thought he was another firefighter. There are nine firefighters on each shift at Station 19. Firefighters detained him until police arrived. It is unclear what time Miller showed up the station. According to news reports the crew in the bunkroom heard someone working out in the gym at 2:00 AM but assumed it was another firefighter.

Here are excerpts from an article by Art Burack of Bay City News:

A firefighter arriving at Station 19 at 390 Buckingham Way in the Taraval District for a morning shift found 29-year-old Eric Miller at about 6 a.m. sitting on the couch watching TV, police said.

The firefighter then asked Miller, “Do you need a jump?” which is firefighter lingo for taking over a shift, according to Talmadge.

Miller didn’t understand the question, and the firefighter became suspicious, she said.

When asked what he was doing there, Miller replied that he “worked for the army and was waiting for an emergency call on the DNS phone,” police spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

Miller had apparently retrieved a female firefighter’s clothing from the dryer and then washed his shoes in the washing machine, Talmadge said.

He then donned the female firefighter’s T-shirt and shorts, and rolled her underwear up inside his own T-shirt, Talmadge said.
