One case on the city's southside will cost taxpayers thousands of dollars.
Albany Housing Authority workers were getting this home in the 600 block of Medlock Avenue ready for a new a tenant when they discovered someone had swiped the entire AC unit from the back of the house.
"In this case they stole the condensing unit from outside and just clipped all the connections and took it off the concrete pad. It's more than just that condensing unit because now we have to replace everything inside as well," said Dan McCarthy, Albany Housing Authority Director.
It could cost up to $6,000 to replace the unit.
The housing authority director says they don't see too many AC thefts because their units rarely are empty.
They have considered fencing in the units, but that would cost tens of thousands of dollars.
