The Autauga County Sheriff’s Office is looking for leads after a man broke into a volunteer fire station and stole a fire-fighting brush truck.
The 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup was stolen from the Pentecost Volunteer Fire Department station at about 1:30 p.m. Monday, said Sheriff Joe Sedinger. The truck, was last seen on Highway 145 in the Gap of the Mountain area, he said.
The red truck, which is decked out with red lights on the roof and Pentecost Volunteer Fire Department decals on the doors, carried a water tank in the bed and was used as a brush-fire fighting truck. The truck and equipment are valued at $60,000.
The suspect somehow got the code for the keypad to enter the station, Sedinger said. The fire chief and several members of the department have reviewed the surveillance footage of the man entering the station and told investigators they do not recognize him.
