ALBANY, GA (WALB) - AC thieves are not letting up. This time thieves hit yet another Dougherty County church.

Staff at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church on Old Moultrie road found an entire unit missing from the building Saturday morning.

The suspects left nothing behind besides drag marks when they carried it off.

The church has been around for 135 years, and this is first time members say thieves have stolen an air conditioning unit.

"It's heart breaking," said Deacon John Roberts. "I know they're basing it on the economy but it's sad."

The unit is worth $3,000. The church hopes insurance will pay for part of it. If you'd like to make donations for a new unit, call Antioch Missionary Baptist church at: (229) - 894-7394.

Further in town, crooks stripped copper wire from another church on West Oglethorpe boulevard.

The unit at Victory Tabernacle was a mangled mess, after the owner noticed it Saturday morning.

Anyone with information on these thefts is urge to call Crime Stoppers at 436-TIPS.
