Rescue Fire Equipment Stolen from Houston (TX) Fire Station

Detectives confirm expensive fire equipment was stolen from a Houston (TX) Fire Station.


The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office released video of a person leaving the Community Fire Department in the 16000 block of Bellaire Boulevard during the early hours of July 20. Detectives want to identify and track down the person to inquire about a theft at the station.

Officials say about $20,000 worth of hydraulic equipment was stolen. Investigators said they do not know where thieves would attempt to sell this equipment. 

“We don’t really think this is something you could go just go pawn,” said Capt. Dean Hensley, with the Harris County Fire Marshalls Office. “We’re not really sure why it was taken. “

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information called in to the 713-222-8477 tips hotline or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the location of the person in this photo. All tipsters remain anonymous.
