INDIANAPOLIS - Their job is to protect the public, but a group of firefighters now need some help themselves.
Wayne Township Fire Department officials said crews parked three firetrucks near West 10th Street and Girls School Road on Sunday morning while they ate breakfast.
While they were inside, a thief or thieves broke into the trucks and took a phone, money and other items that belonged to eight firefighters.
There were no immediate suspects in the case.
The department was considering lock boxes for the trucks so crews could store their personal items inside without worrying.
