State police are investigating after an old fire truck was stolen from a group of camps in Union, including one for children and teen burn survivors and another for Boy Scouts.
Camp Pomperaug, The Connecticut Yankee Council of the Boy Scouts and the Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp jointly own a retired Oxford fire truck and it had been stored on camp property until someone took it without camp personnel knowing, police said.
State troopers from Danielson found the truck around 3:30 p.m. on Monday at Bungay Hill and Old Sawmill roads in Woodstock.
Fortunately, whoever took it off the property did not get far because the truck does not run well, Frank Szivos, Executive Director of the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation said.
The camp starts in July and they are in the process of getting the truck back.
