Suspects caught on camera taking fire extinguishers

- The Winter Haven police chief wants to know who is taking downtown's fire extinguishers.

Six of them have disappeared from the city-owned parking garage since December 17. They are worth about $200 each.

Police say video from surveillance cameras shows what appears to be two teenagers during one of the thefts.

"Why?" Chief Charlie Bird asked. "That's the million-dollar question. Where is it going? Why did they take that?"

There is a $3,000 reward for anyone who provides information as to who took the extinguishers.
