Man accused of breaking into fire station and putting on a firefighter’s pants and hat

Firefighters returning to their station from battling a brush fire in Eugene, Oregon, early on Tuesday morning got a surprise when they walked inside and found a stranger, dressed in firefighter gear, sitting at a table waiting for the crew’s return.

Freddie Jess Sarenana, 36, of Eugene, was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine, first-­degree criminal trespass and second-­degree criminal mischief. He was taken to the Lane County Jail.

According to Eugene police, Sarenana broke a window at the Eugene-Springfield Fire Department’s East 33rd Avenue fire station with a rock at around 4am and climbed inside. Police said he then climbed on top of a fire truck and lay down on the roof for a while.

After climbing off the truck, Sarenana then changed into some firefighting pants and belt and put on a firefighter’s hat, police said. Officers said Sarenana was compliant when he was arrested. He was found with methamphetamine in his possession, police said.
