Newberry Springs Fire Department
Broken Into And Burglarized
Posted: June 12, 2014
Thieves are believed to have droven a vehicle down a driveway
on the north side of the fire department.
Sometime during the night of Wednesday, June 11, 2014, thieves reportedly
drove off of Newberry Road onto a driveway on the north side of the Newberry Springs Fire
Parking adjacent to the rear north fence line, the thieves are believed to
have cut an opening in the hurricane fence to gain entrance to the rear of the compound.
Breaking the lock to a trailer, the thieves took a gas powered
electric generator. Reportedly, the generator had an electrical output of 5,000 watts.
As of this post time, the loss of anything else is not known as an inventory check of other
equipment and supplies have not been completed.
The fire department's main equipment was locked in the department's main
building in which the thieves did not acquire access to.
There have been two other electric gas generators reportedly stolen within
a week's time. Following one of the thefts, the following day a suspecious red and white
dually pick-up truck reportedly appeared at one of the properties but reportedly quickly departed
upon the driver realizing that the property was occupied.
Thieves allegedly drove their vehicle down a side driveway
and apparently cut a fence to gain entrance onto the property.
