It is imperative that this boy face consequences to such a serious offense. Luckily, nobody knew it was gone and there was no emergency that required it's presence, With that said, what if it HAD been needed and a life or lives had been lost. I remember being a teen and doing stupid stuff but NEVER had I had something so idiotic. The boy (and I do mean boy because only a young child would do something so impulsive without thinking of possible consequences) must be punished in a way that doesn't necessarily send him to jail but his punishment should be severe enough so he realizes what he did was not okay. My 5 and 8 year old boys have been taught that many choices are theirs to make, however, if the wrong choice is made and we've already set down the ground rules, they will be punished. The punishment is based on the offense. It amazes me that this 18 year old boy doesn't know that yet my boys do...

Wow so I so if his friends bet him to jump off a bridge I wonder if he would. I cant believe he actually was dumb enough to do this. I swear some kids have nothing better to do with there time then to look for ways to get in trouble.

I was a volunteer firefighter for about 6 years before i left the profession. this kid needs to be strung up by his toes. had their been a brush fire or a field fire (this is the time of year that standing corn like to go up real easy) someones house and possesions could have been lost, or worse someones life could have been lost. He did it because someone bet him he wouldnt do it? i mean really is that the kind of jerk off you are? swallow your pride jr and make smart choices not dumb selfish ones.

He is of age and was likely intoxicated while driving the truck back to the station. whether he had been drinking or not this ADULT needs to go to PRISON. Let him learn his lesson by being somebodies bitch for awhile.

why is it that easy to take a fire truck... where is the sercurity? If i leave the keys in my car and someone steals it, its my fault and insurance wont do nothing. Isn't this kind of the same thing. If you're stupid enough to leave your keys in the vehical only bad things will happen. Uh..Duh!

it's my understanding he was a volunteer fireman and had access to the station. He comes from a trashy family so probably never learned right from wrong. He also stole stuff from Bill Bauers shed after Bill was killed yet he was at the visitation acting all sad when in reality, he was probably thinking of what he could steal. He needs to do hard time..

Yeah, well you have to remember, this is Stark county, home of the dumbass redneck. They are an all volunteer operation and they are idiots and retards.
The all volunteer fire department sure gets a lot of action. Why are there so many fires over that way? Is one of them a fire bug???? I wouldn't doubt it. There's a lot of mental illness in Stark County. They are inbred hicks.
