Hollywood Firefighters’ Vehicles Burglarized At Station

HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) — Five firefighters simply doing their jobs returned to Station 45 Wednesday morning to find their vehicles burglarized.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the firefighters were on duty late Tuesday night at one of Hollywood’s busiest stations when one or more thieves broke into five vehicles.

Firefighters suspect the vehicles, parked behind the station and with no exterior security cameras to protect them, may have been broken into while the station’s men were answering an emergency rescue call.

The Sun-Sentinel cites Hollywood Fire Rescue Division Chief Eric Busenbarrick in reporting items belonging to firefighters were taken from the vehicles.

A fire rescue employee who about to go on duty discovered the burglaries about 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Investigators spent Wednesday morning dusting for fingerprints while firefighters vacuumed up the shattered glass from multiple vehicles.

Officials ask that anyone with information to call Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477).

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel contributed to this report.
