Twenty-six-year-old William Meier and 20-year-old John Futcher III, both of Butler, were also charged with criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools, theft, and receiving stolen property. Both were being held Monday on $75,000 cash bail.

The Daily Record of Parsippany reports that police responded to the Butler firehouse on Feb. 21, after an off-duty firefighter reported seeing some suspicious activity.

Investigators soon determined that several items that department members used for their personal safety had been stolen, and several lockers and interior rooms had been damaged.

It was not known if either man had retained a lawyer.
