MEMPHIS (AP) — Air conditioner thefts are soaring like the temperatures in Memphis.
Since May 1, more than 150 such thefts have been reported to police. And that’s not counting the ones unreported. Police told The Commercial Appeal that the thefts are done for resale and to get copper from them.
Stolen have been small window units and larger outside ones.
Police suggested that citizens keep a record of their unit’s serial number and engrave something into a unit to prove ownership.
