No One Noticed Stolen Fire Truck
NORRIS, S.D. (AP) _ No fires have been reported in the Norris area lately. And good thing, since no one knew the fire truck had been missing for more than a week.
Junior Brandis, Mellette County sheriff, said Tuesday no one noticed the truck had been stolen until Friday, when members of the Norris Volunteer Fire Department were told to be ready in case lightning sparked range fires.
Officers found the truck Saturday in a creek southeast of Norris, Brandis said. No arrests had been made Tuesday, but authorities have a suspect, the sheriff said.
The truck was not damaged, Brandis said.
