The Billings Fire Department is requesting the public's help in finding gear that was stolen from a personal vehicle Friday night (08/26). Unfortunately, no security camera footage captured any suspect information regarding this case, however a police report has been filed.
The items pictured above are an estimate; some items may vary from what exactly was stolen, but everything was contained in the red duffle bag, which was the item stolen.
