A/C Units stolen, replaced and stolen again

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Thieves continue to swipe air conditioning units from an Albany housing development paid for with federal tax money. 

Dalewood Estates on Willie Pitts Road is an apartment complex being developed for elderly residents.  In the past few months, thieves have snatched entire brand new A/C units several times.    

Curtis Harrison, who works for Pollock heating and air, did the repair work at the complex.  He said, "We've had six of them stolen and we've had to replace those and now we've had to replace three more."    

The developers of the complex have roped off the entrance and hired security so that no more A/C units disappear.
