Oakalla VFD burglarized
November 13, 2013, 1:00 pm by Alexandria Randolph
Over $10,000 worth of equipment was stolen in a burglary that took place at Oakalla Volunteer Fire Station Sunday night.
Burnet County Sheriff W.T. Smith said that a $10,000 Jaws of Life device and several self-contained breathing apparatuses were taken in the burglary.
"I understand the Jaws-of-Life is a pretty expensive piece,” he said. "It’s a critical piece of equipment for anybody that responds to any major accidents to get people out that are injured.”
Smith said anyone with information about the burglary or the missing equipment should contact him or Burnet County Capt. Dwight Hardin at the Sheriffs Office; 512.756.8080.
