Officials question how Connecticut fire truck donated to one Jamaica town landed in another

The Hartford Fire Department donated an old fire truck to its sister city, Morant Bay, Jamaica, in 2008, but the truck never made it there.
Now, the Hartford Police Department is investigating, Jenna Carlesso with the Hartford Courant reported.
From the Hartford Courant:
The truck was instead transferred to a suburb of Kingston, Jamaica, according to sources. The truck ended up in Portmore, Jamaica, after the Jamaican Fire Brigade decided it would be better used in that town, sources said.
Two more trucks, 1985 Peter Pirsch pumpers, are scheduled to be shipped to Jamaica, but Hartford City Council President Shawn Wooden is trying to delay the deliveries until they find out what happened with the first truck, WTIC-TV reported.
“This city council was unaware of the fact that there was a prior fire truck donated, and certainly unaware that that prior fire truck reportedly never made it to its destination,” Wooden told WTIC-TV.

The Hartford Courant’s complete story is here and CBS’s full story is here.
