Wayne Township firefighters asked the public to be on alert after a man was caught on camera sifting through items in a fire truck last Friday.
The Wayne Township Fire Department ladder truck was parked at the Chapel Hill Shopping Plaza at 10th Street and Girls School Road. According to the video, the man was seen peeking inside the truck at about 9 a.m.
Once spotted by firefighters, he ran away empty handed.
Wayne Township Capt. Mike Pruitt said he hopes the incident isn't a growing trend.
"It's a shame that we have to go through this and keep such a close eye on our equipment, but we'll do that. We have to adjust and adapt to what's going on in the community. We hope this isn't a sign of the times but we know of several other instances where this has happened."
Firefighters in Pike Township said earlier this year, someone stole more than $2,000 worth of medicine and equipment from one of their fire trucks while EMS crews were on a run.
If you recognize the man in the video, contact the Wayne Township Fire Department at 317-246-6200.
