Copper lines cut at church

  • Follow Crime & courts

An intruder cut the copper lines of an air conditioning unit and freezer at Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta last week, but never made off with the goods.

Between Jan. 13 and 15, someone cut the lines to the church’s walk-in freezer and air conditioning unit, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

Thieves normally steal the valuable copper tubing from air conditioners to sell as scrap metal. In this case however, the copper was left behind. A church security worker reported no other damage.

Maybe he was stealing only the freon. That stuff's expensive, you know.

Any day now I expect to read some guy had his clothes taken while walking down Highland....let with his bare fanny glowing in the breeze...usual suspects.
