Air conditioner thefts leave people sweating it out

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY (WJRT) -

(07/12/12) - It's hot outside, and even hotter inside for some people.

One Flint police officer is calling air conditioner thefts an epidemic.

Air conditioning thefts are kind of an epidemic because they are such easy targets," Captain TP Johnson said.

Johnson say thieves are ripping off air conditioning units to steal copper or metal.

It's sometimes hard to catch the crooks because people often don't notice their air conditioner is gone until they try to use it.

Johnson say people can help stop these thefts by being a good neighbor.

"If somebody is messing around inside of someone's house and you don't know them and they are not the owner, you do not have to confront them, but you can call the police"
