Compressor stolen from fire station work site

Thieves broke into the work site of the new Stevens County fire station in Suncrest and stole an 80-gallon air compressor Sunday night.

Investigators say the thief or thieves used a grinder or torch to cut into a storage unit to reach the compressor.

Officials say the Eagle 7.5 horsepower, 24.6 CFM, 80-gallon compressor was still shrink wrapped and on a pallet.

Investigators believe the thieves drove across a field along Highway 291 and may have also damaged the undercarriage of their truck.

Nothing else on site is missing. T
