A chainsaw valued at $1,200 was stolen from a Gallinas Volunteer Fire Department truck between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Nov. 28 in front of K-Bobs restaurant on Seventh Street, an official said.
Fire Lt. Lorenzo Montoya said the crew had been battling a fire near La Morada, which had started on Thanksgiving Day and had returned from putting out hot spots to eat dinner. He said the Fire Department will not press charges if the chainsaw is returned. He asks that anyone with information about this theft call 425-6171.
Montoya said the La Morada fire was successfully contained.
