Sebastian County authorities say a former fire chief and his father were arrested and charged with Conspiracy to Commit Theft. Allegedly, the two stole fire trucks from a fire department to give to another fire department in the area as a "gift" after their station had been closed down.
Former Jenny Lind Fire Chief Brian Allison and his father, James Dean Allison, are accused of giving five fire trucks and self-contained breathing apparatuses to the Cedarville Fire Department. The assistant fire chief says he believed the equipment had been donated to them.
The story is still developing.
