Albany -- Two trusted employees are charged with stealing more than $20,000 worth of air conditioners from the Albany business where they worked.

38 year old Lawrence Green and 28 year old Nathaniel Collins are charged with stealing at least 20 air conditioning units from Engineering and Equipment on North Washington Street.

Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigators have recovered 19 of the units at homes in South Georgia and Alabama. Investigators say Green and Collins stole the units, then sold and installed them.

Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigator Lt. Eric Miller said "they had access to the company truck. And they would leave with one unit for a legitimate sale, they would actually load an extra unit or two in the truck and sell them to people they knew."

Green had worked at E and E for 12 years, and was a supervisor. Sheriff's Investigators say charges may be filed against the people who bought the air conditioners.
