Rash of church AC thefts under investigation

Posted: Updated:

Police are investigating church thefts in Bartow, Gilmer, Cherokee and Pickens counties.

Detectives believe the crimes are all related.

Over the past two weeks, the churches have suffered the thefts of outside air conditioner units.

These air conditioning units are very likely being sold for scrap metal after being stolen, according to police.

Detectives believe that a red pickup truck might be involved in the thefts.

Gordon County sheriff's office is offering a reward to anyone who can provide information that will lead to an arrest.

The sheriff urges anyone seeing suspicious activity, especially in isolated areas, to call 911.
