Early Thursday morning, surveillance cameras caught an individual breaking into the Oak Cliff Fire Department and stealing a toolbox loaded with tools, a power washer and a leaf blower.
The theft took place as firefighters were sleeping.
“We are fortunate that this is all they took, but it could have been worse,” an Oak Cliff spokesperson said. “Remember, they didn’t just steal from us, but our whole community as it was your tax dollars that purchased those tools to begin with.”
The department, located at 13425 S Bryant Ave. in southern Logan County, encourages everyone in the community to lock their doors.
“This person came into our home while we were sleeping to steal, and he will do the same to you.”
If you have any information, you’re encouraged to contact the Logan County Sheriff’s Office at 405-282-4100.
