Some of Wilton Fire Department’s equipment that was stolen early last month has been recovered.
Almost $10,000 in fire gear was stolen from a contractor’s Mandan home.
Authorities have found 5 of the 12 fire gear sets.
Two men in the area to have been found in possession of the gear.
Lieutenant Patrick Haug tells us it has been a joint effort between the Bismarck and Mandan police departments.
“We’d received some information from Bismarck Police Department that they’d come across a couple pieces of that gear.
So, they got ahold of us, which ultimately led to us obtaining a search warrant for a garage here in Mandan,” said Haug.
The Mandan Police Department says they are still investigating the theft, and asks that residents keep their eyes open for the remaining gear.
