You know it's bad when someone steals from first responders, but that's exactly what has happened in Jasper.

The Jasper Police Department posted a message on Facebook on Friday seeking help in locating items taken from Walker County Marine Search and Rescue.

Police say someone broke into the agency's building in Jasper over the last week, taking four boats and an outboard motor. Authorities believe the items may have been altered to disguise the ownership.

Authorities say the all-volunteer organization is also missing items including chainsaws, generators and other tools.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Jasper Police Department.
