Albany Church air conditioners stripped

Posted: Updated:

Another Albany church is vandalized by copper thieves.

Two large air conditioners at the Center of Refuge on West Highland Avenue were stripped by copper thieves, despite the best efforts by the church to protect them. There is a large chain link fence around the units, and razor wire on top of the fence. But the thieves cut the lock off the gate to get in and stole the lock too.

It will cost thousands of dollars to replace the two stripped air conditioners.

We were unable to speak to church officials Wednesday about the theft.
