Three televisions and a video conferencing system were stolen from a Pueblo Fire Station over a week ago. Police are asking for the public’s help in solving the crime.

Pueblo Police say someone forced their way into Fire Station Number 4 and stole two 47” televisions and a 60” television between the evening of March 24 and the next morning. The station is located at 2201 Lake Ave.

A Lifesize Codec 220 Video Conference System was also stolen. The system included two video cameras, the codec (a square box), and two round Lifesize teleconference phones.

The suspects also did approximately $10,000 worth of damage to the interior of the fire department building, police say.

Anyone with information about this burglary is asked to call Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 542-STOP (542-7867).

    Here are the facts: This is a brand new, yet to be occupied station that is nearing completion. It was paid for mainly with federal grant money. It is replacing a station that was built in the 40's that is a structural nuisance. It is a very modern building, and includes teleconferencing technology in the training room, where the thefts occurred after forced entry (and not the first burglary at this location). The training room is the first in the city that will allow for video and teleconferenced training...instead of driving a $300,000 truck to the downtown classroom and leaving the area with lessened emergency coverage. It is (or was) for the public's overall benefit. Also for the record; if a crew decides to have a station TV, they purchase it themselves. They pay their own cable bills, and yes, they also pay for every meal they eat while on duty 24 hours at a time (averaging over 240 duty hours per month). All while proudly serving our citizens. Any questions?

    For the person that thinks we sit around all day and watch tv, come by and visit any station to see what we do. Give it a try. We train, run calls, maintain our equipment, reports, inspections, etc. The equipment was for training to save you money and keep us in our territory.

    At least they didn't get the Ping Pong table, lawn chairs, or BBQ grill. Who needs tv's anyway, can't get a tan lounging inside on a couch. Everybody outside so we can work on our base and wash the truck. All of us "heros" can hit the bars later and bug people about 9/11.
