    Silly hosedraggers....back to your recliners!!

    BERLIN, Vt. -- Some volunteer firefighters in Vermont have been accused of using Jaws of Life during a vandalism spree, WPTZ-TV in in Plattsburgh, N.Y., reported.

    Firefighters usually use the tool to help victims of serious car crashes escape the mangled wreckage.

    Police in Berlin said Howard Silk, 23; John Silk, 20; Shawn Silk, 20; and Matthew Squires, 23; all Berlin volunteer firefighters, stole and damaged public property around central Vermont with the Jaws of Life during what police think might have been a scavenger hunt brought on by a dare.

    Police said the four started the spree at the Berlin Mall and Central Vermont Hospital, pulling hubcaps and windshield wipers from cars. The four then headed to the Montpelier park and the town of Northfield, damaging pay phones and stealing street signs, police said.

    Police said they got a break in the case in mid-September when someone came forward with information into the case, including that the vandalism may have been part of a dare.

    Police said they aren't sure who dared the four, and the Berlin Fire Department said it never had any involvement in the crime nor did it know the equipment had been used.

    So far, the crimes are only misdemeanors, but they could turn into felonies depending on the total damage, the television station reported.
