Richmond Police arrested a man today after he was caught stealing a cell phone from Fire Station #1:

Firefighters were dispatched on a call shortly before 11:30 a.m., but as they hurriedly drove from the station house at 308 N. 24th St., they noticed that the automatic garage door didn’t close. When they returned a few minutes later, the door was still open, and they saw someone inside the station house stuffing something into one of his pockets, fire Lt. Shawn L. Jones said. The man ran, and the firefighters quickly realized one of their cell phones was missing, so they drove after him while calling police.
