BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A volunteer fire department in Warren County was robbed Wednesday afternoon, and now one of their trucks used to help save lives and property is out of commission for a while.

Yesterday evening around 5:30 p.m. a truck was stolen from the Richardsville Volunteer Fire Department Station #2 on Mt. Olivet Girkin Rd.

Law Enforcement then found the vehicle on the side of the road on Wayne Watt Road a few hours later.

Thieves removed all of the tools including chainsaws, blowers and hand tools from the truck.

An iPad in an Otterbox case, a medical bag, and a silver water can extinguisher were also stolen.
