It may be the season of giving, but the Jena Volunteer Fire Department in Greene County wants their stuff back after thieves broke in and stole thousands of dollars worth of lifesaving equipment.

The break-in happened sometime between the night of Tuesday, Nov. 23, and the afternoon of Saturday, Nov. 27.

Jena Volunteer Firefighter Colby Hamner said they need the community’s help in finding out who is responsible.

“If anyone saw anything please say something,” Hamner said. “If someone is trying to sell you a chainsaw or anything with ‘Jena Fire Department’ on it, that’s a dead giveaway. We’d like our stuff back.”

The total for the repairs and item replacement will cost around $10,000, Hamner said. There were no security cameras at the time, but there soon will be.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the burglary.

If you’d like to assist the Jena Volunteer Fire Department in repairs and or in replacing their stolen equipment, checks can be sent to:
