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.
