Missouri firefighter accused of construction equipment theft
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis firefighter was on administrative leave Wednesday morning after being accused of stealing construction equipment from a local concrete company.
Prosecutors charged 37-year-old Brian Burton with felony stealing. He was later released on bond.
Investigators said Burton and an unidentified person were found with stolen construction equipment at a Webster Groves home.
A St. Louis Fire Department spokesman said Burton joined the department in December 2013.
Online court records did not show whether Burton had an attorney.
