Fire Truck Stolen from Rural Wyoming Fire Department

MIDWEST, Wyo. (AP) -- Vehicle thefts don't attract much attention on the police blotter these days.

But the Natrona County Sheriff's Office isn't investigating just another vehicle theft, it's investigating the weekend theft of a county fire truck.

The truck was parked on a ranch near Midwest, Sgt. Mark Sellers said Monday.

Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers found the truck parked along Interstate 25 at milepost 286 south of near Buffalo about 9 a.m. Sunday, Sellers told the Casper Star-Tribune.

In fact, it was found even before it was reported missing from the ranch where the thief or thieves drove it through a fence, he said.

The federal government donated the truck, valued at $20,000, to the Natrona County Fire Protection District, Sellers said.

Sheriff's deputies have no suspects, he said.
