AC equipment stolen through a hole in the wall

Burglars hit a downtown Albany air conditioning supply business and steal thousands of dollars worth of equipment.

Take a look at this hole cut in the fence behind the Engineering and Equipment Company in the 900 block of North Washington Street.

Workers continue to check their inventory... But they know at least 10-thousand dollars worth of air conditioning equipment was stolen.

Officials at the business say this is a recurring problem... but this time the thieves took entire a-c units rather than just gutting them for copper tubing.

They say they will improve security to try to stop the thefts.
