A recent string of air conditioning thefts have left Fort Wayne police officers and Twin Oaks Apartments residents angry! As many as 20 air conditioning units were stolen from Twin Oaks Apartments in mid December. It’s apparent that with the winter weather conditions outside that this thief does not anticipate using the air conditioners for keeping cool, but for selling to scrapyards for extra cash.

The thief is more than likely not planning on scrapping to any local yards due to the area scrapyard owners being on high alert. There is an apartment surveillance video posted on of the air conditioners being stolen, please contact authorities if you are familiar with this suspect.
