As the Post reported, Sessler and his FDNY colleagues detained the two men until the NYPD arrived.
Jason De Jesus, 21, reportedly took Sessler's sunglasses and an air freshener.
“They’re just round, polarized sunglasses,” shrugged Sessler. “They’re just fishing sunglasses. I fish a lot.”
In addition, the NYPD reportedly found marijuana and cocaine on De Jesus, who was charged with petit larceny and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. The second man, Andre Kinard, 31, was charged with petit larceny.
Sessler is usually stationed at Ladder 9 on Great Jones Street, where his car has been broken into twice even though he doesn't keep valuables inside.
"It's kind of common in the neighborhood," he told the Post. "It’s been happening a lot."
