 Investigators say he confessed to taking air conditioners from churches on Cordele Road.

Chapman was spotted by a Lee County deputy Monday afternoon leaving the Cross Pointe Church on Forester Parkway with an air conditioning unit in the back of a pickup truck. He got away. The next day Dougherty County Police spotted him on surveillance video selling copper wiring at a salvage yard and arrested him.

 More charges are pending, as they continue to investigate a number of air conditioner thefts at Dougherty and Lee County churches.
