NH man accused of stealing, wearing firefighter gear
PEABODY (AP) - A Peabody police officer thought there was something suspicious when he spotted a man walking down a city street in full firefighter gear.
Sgt. Timothy Maroney didn't recognize the man as either a current or former city firefighter. When he asked the man he spotted at about 4:40 a.m. Sunday where he got the gear, the man said he found it in a park.
Police tell The Daily Item of Lynn that Deputy Fire Chief Eric Harrison arrived on the scene and said the gear was brand new, had never been issued, and was missing from a fire station basement storage area where a bulkhead door had been found open.
Kasey Donovan, of Goffstown, N.H., was charged with breaking and entering and other offenses. He was freed on $1,000 bail.
