Description: A brazen thief stole from an ambulance at a small metro fire department.
It happened while the volunteer firefighters were hosting a Christmas party for kids in the community.
The crime was caught on surveillance camera.
While fire trucks were coming down the street with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus for the big party at the fire department, a thief jumped through the side door of the ambulance and got away with a bag full of medical supplies worth about 1.828€.
Firefighters in Cashion are frustrated because a Scrooge showed up at their Christmas party.
There are about twenty volunteer firefighters in Cashion, and they wanted to celebrate the holiday for the community they serve.
“Santa and Mrs. Claus got in the sleigh and came here to the big town of Cashion, and we put them in the firetruck," said Fire Department spokesperson Trent Gibson. "We had people email us if they wanted Santa to stop by their house, so we go by and picked up their wish lists."
They were gone for about an hour.
Surveillance video shows the fire truck lights in the background, as a thief jumps in the side door around 8:30 p.m. Monday.
Just feet away, kids were running into the firehouse with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
No one had any idea a thief had crashed their party and taken something so valuable.
