New Jersey Firehouse Burglarized

November 2, 2011

Trenton firefighters say they returned from a Halloween morning alarm to find their firehouse had been broken into and personal items stolen.

Fire Director Qareeb Bashir tells the Times of Trenton the thieves got into Engine Co. 1 through an unlocked window. He wouldn’t say how much loot they made off with because he doesn’t want firehouses to become targets.

The break-in wasn’t the only time in October that the city’s firefighters were crime victims.

On Oct. 15, a group tried to steal equipment from an engine and on Oct. 21, a teen was accused of hurling a concrete block at firefighters. No injuries were reported.
