After two break-ins over the last two weeks, nearly $5,000 worth of equipment has been stolen from the Shamrock (OK) Volunteer Fire Department, reports newson6.com.
Officials say the thieves made off with winches, three leaf blowers, paint guns, and gas cans. The leaf blowers are essential when fighting brush fires, officials note, and the winches are desperately needed in case one of the trucks gets stuck.
