Attempted theft at the SFD thwarted by Chief Vance and Chief Carnes!

Chief Gene Vance and Chief Milt Carnes thwarted an attempted theft from the Steelton Fire Department this morning. Chief Carnes was at the station working on the vehicles when Chief Vance arrived and advised that two males were trying to steal the chicken bbq pits. Chief Carnes approached the males to distract them while Chief Vance radioed for the police. Chief Carnes made the males return the pits and materials they had placed into their van and the Steelton Police and Chief Vance tracked the males in the van and found them in Harrisburg City. A big thank you to Chief Vance, Chief Carnes, and the Steelton Police for their rapid response and quick actions which helped save the fire department from loosing almost $3,000.00 worth of property.

Use Caution, thefts are on the rise and nobody is immune to theft!
