Air conditioners stolen in East Spencer
EAST SPENCER — The East Spencer Police Department is investigating the theft of $26,000 worth of air conditioning units from a church.
The theft occurred sometime between Sunday and early Monday at Christian Association Convention Center, 308 Boundary St., Police Chief Floyd Baldo said.
Thieves stole four large air conditioning units from the church, Baldo said.
The Rev. John Jones reported the theft, saying he checks the church daily.
The thieves broke into a gate surrounding the units and cut the interior parts out of them.
It appeared the suspects dragged the units to the road due to the marks in the grass, Baldo said.
The case is still under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the East Spencer Police Department at 704-637-1660.
