    Los Angeles County Fire Department radio room theft.

    September 14th, Saturday morning, we heard from the Station Captain at FS 77 that the gate to NV Station was open. He sent Rescue 77 over and they discovered that North Valley Station radio room had been burglarized.

    The LAPD, who arrived shortly thereafter, took a police report #191613942. I also contacted the ACS Command Staff and they informed OVB
    Assistant Chief Rose and BC12 Ward, who arrived to see the damage.

    The radios were ripped out of their brackets and some of the new shelving was smashed. Grafitti was left on the wall. The Astron power supply was dumped on the floor and may have been damaged.

    The approximate value of the stolen equipment is $7,500. The damage to the door and shelving is approximately $1,500. As we go through the inventory we may discover that other items are missing.

    Stolen items with value:

    Kenwood TS-2000X, HF-V-U-1.2, $1300, S/n 30500002
    Kenwood TM-281A, VHF, $140, Mobile, S/n B5C01052

    One minor correction: This was LAFD, the Los Angeles CITY Fire Department's ACS Group, NOT LA County, a separate entity.
