Forest Service Offering Reward for Information on Susanville Radio Shop Burglary

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

The Lassen National Forest is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for a burglary that occurred in the early morning hours of February 7th.

The USFS Radio Shop, located off of Fifth Street in Susanville, was burglarized for over $60,000 worth of radios, computers and other equipment used by firefighters for fire suppression and public safety on the Lassen National Forest.

Anybody with information about this incident is asked to call Patrol Captain Adam Hill or Special Agent Tony Magarrell at 530-252-6400. All information will be held confidential.

Citing the high dollar value of the lost equipment and slow replacement process, Acting Lassen National Forest Supervisor, Ted McArthur weighed in. “This unfortunate incident has the potential to compromise the safety of fire crews this year,” said McArthur.

“Some firefighters may not be issued radios, which significantly increases their risk of not getting immediate and critical information while on the fire lines. We’re asking our community to help us find the party or parties responsible for this crime so that our equipment will be returned and ready for use when fire season arrives.”
