Firefighters Have Cash, Phones Stolen While Out On Call

A man has been arrested after a team of western Sydney firefighters had their personal belongings stolen while responding to an emergency last night.

Fire & Rescue crews from Bankstown Station were out at an incident in Yagoona at 7.40pm on Monday when thieves broke into the Hume Highway premises and forced open a number of lockers.

When the firies returned they found one of the windows at the front of the station had been smashed and contacted police.

A trace on one of the stolen phones led officers to a hotel on the Hume Highway where two men were arrested.

One, a 38-year-old, has since been charged with breaking and entering, having goods in custody, malicious damage and breach of bail.

The second, 29, was released pending further inquiries.
