Arrest made in thefts of N. TX firefighters' pickups

An arrest has been made in connection to two pickup trucks stolen from Wise County volunteer firefighters.

Police said the firefighters were lured away from the fire station by arsonists -- the East Wise Fire Rescue station had a call for three fires all within a few minutes last month.

While firefighters were away, someone stole two of their personal pickup trucks.

Tonia Roberts, 37, was caught driving one of the stolen trucks and has been charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

The second truck was found abandoned in Dallas.

The Wise County Sheriff's Department said more arrests are expected.
