Ex-North NJ Firefighter Sentenced on Theft Count

A former volunteer firefighter in northern New Jersey who improperly tried to sell some department-issued gear will not be headed to prison.

Morris County prosecutors say 20-year-old Ryan Curran of Pine Brook was sentenced Friday to a year of probation and 50 hours of community service. He also can never again serve as a firefighter in New Jersey.

A former member of the Boonton Fire Department, Curran had pleaded guilty last month to theft by unlawful taking. He admitted that he took old, department-issued equipment -- mostly protective clothing -- and sold it to a third-party who offered the items for sale online.

The equipment, which was valued at about $2,200, was recovered before it could be sold.
