/ VIDEO, PHOTO / Expensive equipment used to save lives was stolen by hitherto unknown thieves of professional firefighters in the capital and beyond. Whether these cases have a common denominator – that is, the perpetrator or someone who ordered the theft – should be shown by further investigation.

However, it almost looks as if someone, with the help of thieves, has equipped his own unit to intervene in traffic accidents. This is exactly the purpose of stolen equipment – and its use for other purposes is difficult to imagine.
The thief series began in Beroun early on Saturday, April 2. Between two-thirty and one-thirty, unknown perpetrators broke into the garages of the fire station after destroying the castle, where they covered the cameras with caps and then searched the emergency vehicles (the firefighters in the garages have them unlocked). Three suitcases with tools and other rescue equipment became prey, said police spokeswoman Michaela Richterová. “But they didn’t end up with that and went to the warehouse and workshop, where the camera was diverted with the help of a broom. However, they probably didn’t like anything in these rooms, “she added.

In Prague, thieves broke into the fire station in Jinonice early on Sunday, April 3; in this case, they entered through a window. Police spokesman Jan Rybanský also took their equipment from here, said police spokesman Jan Rybanský. “These are mainly expansion pliers, drive unit, pedal cutter and other equipment,” he specified.
Until the third, unknown perpetrators raged in Hořovice, again on Tuesday, April 5, again very early in the morning: after two o’clock. After breaking the door lock, they robbed a fire tank. “They stole the rescue equipment, the spreader, the mini-shears and the two-meter high-pressure hose,” Richter calculated.
Prague firefighters estimated the damage at more than three hundred thousand crowns, Central Bohemia preliminarily at 150 thousand.
