A Pennsylvania firefighter is accused of stealing rescue equipment from his fire department and selling it on eBay.
Timothy Kennelly was arrested last week and charged with stealing over $30,000 worth of equipment from the Lower Southampton Volunteer Fire Department. The stolen equipment includes SCUBA tanks, masks, underwater airbags, dry suits, chainsaws and regulators.
The department discovered the equipment was missing when personnel were dispatched to a water rescue last month in the Delaware River that resulted in the death of John Poltonowicz. No word on whether Kennelly will also be facing homicide charges related to Poltonowicz’s death.
