Firefighters robbed while raising money for charity on Labor Day


A small town in Missouri is wrestling with the theft of personal belongings stolen from firefighters who were off raising money for muscular dystrophy.

Police were called to the Raytown fire station on Labor Day after it was discovered that several items were stolen from the department bunkhouse.

A surveillance camera caught the image of a man with a thin build and red facial hair wearing a Seattle Seahawks hat, white T-shirt and brown shorts.

The Raytown Fire Department took to Facebook and expressed their anger towards the situation.

“It takes a special kind of person to break into a fire station …. Especially while the firefighters are out of the station collecting for MDA,” the post said. “The man pictured here went through the personal belongings of the firefighters today helping himself to a wallet, a pair of shoes and a few other assorted items. If you recognize this person or have knowledge about this theft please contact the Raytown Police Department.”

According to the Merced Sun Star, Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
