FIRE MARSHALS ARREST BROOKLYN MAN
IN CONNECTION WITH FIREFIGHTING EQUIPMENT
STOLEN FROM WORLD TRADE CENTER DISASTER SITE

Fire Marshals from the New York City Fire Department's Bureau of Fire Investigation announced today the arrest of Jack Ianno, age 24 of 2855 Cropsy Avenue in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Mr. Ianno was arrested following a call to his home for a report of an odor of smoke. Members from Ladder Company 166 forced the door to the second floor apartment in order to extinguish a fire on the stove. Inside the apartment, firefighters spotted what appeared to be an air tank and mask, commonly referred to by firefighters as a Scott Pack. Closer inspection revealed that the breathing apparatus belonged to FDNY Ladder Company 22 of upper Manhattan, and was reported missing on September 11, 2001 from the site of the World Trade Center disaster.

Fire Marshals assigned to the Bureau of Fire Investigation affected the arrest of Mr. Ianno and have charged him with Criminal Possession of Stolen Property, a class E Felony. If convicted Mr. Ianno could face up to three years in prison.
