Zeilger Fire Chief Offers Reward for Stolen Pager


By Evie Allen

ZEIGLER -- A Franklin County fire chief is offering an award after a theft.

Zeigler Police have been investigating a string of vehicle burglaries. A member of the Fire Department was a recent victm.  Among the items taken was his department pager. That pager costs around $500. 
Zeigler Fire Chief Ryan Buckingham says their members serve on a volunteer basis. The pagers are the only way to know if they need to respond to an emergency.
"I can assure you that if the equipment is brought back and the person responsible is found out, we'll take care of that person and make sure they receive a thank you from us," he says.
Buckingham is offering a personal reward, not out of city funds. If you have any information regarding the theft you're asked to call 724-2424.
