ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Copper thieves strike another Albany church.

Janitors at the Christ Harvest Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church on Centennial Drive discovered four air conditioning units stripped of copper tubing Sunday morning. The church took the precaution to spray paint their units, to mark them so scrap metal yards won't buy them, but thieves ripped the units apart anyway.

They estimate it will cost at least two thousand dollars to repair the units.

If you have any information about this theft, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
