Oklahoma Sheriffs Still Searching for Missing F-350 Fire Truck
One of two F-350 fire trucks stolen from Wagoner County, Oklahoma recovered in late February, seek info on remaining truck.
Our first responders rely upon their Ford trucks, SUVs, and crossovers to get the job done, from protecting the public, to rescue and emergency operations. The worst thing that could happen is for their vehicles to not be there when the need arises.
That is exactly what happened to the Red Bird Fire Department in Wagoner County, Oklahoma. According to Tulsa FOX affiliate KOKI-TV, thieves made off with two of the volunteer fire department’s F-350 brush rig fire trucks, plus equipment needed to fight such fires.
“The value of the trucks is hundreds of thousands of dollars if you add all of the equipment and everything,” says Red Bird Fire Department chief Brody Morris, “so it’s a pretty good hit for us.”
Morris adds that the theft of the F-350 brush trucks did more than harm the fire department by also affecting other communities the department helps. And while the newer red F-350 was found in the next county over, the older Ford is still out there.
“Just bring my trucks back so I can serve the people of my community,” asks Morris of the thieves who took both F-350s, adding that he’s already forgiven them for doing so.
If you can help the Red Bird Fire Department recover the missing white F-350, the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office can be reached at 918-485-3124 or 918-485-7799.
