AKRON, Ohio (WJW) -- Someone stole the air conditioning unit from Akron Alliance Fellowship Church about three weeks ago, according to Pastor Gus Brown.
It was a loss of $3,500 for the church that sits on Diagonal Road in Akron.
“It was a brand new unit that we had just put in. We hadn't even made the first payment on it yet, it had only been in a few days,” Brown said.
The church immediately called Akron police.
“They cut the wires nicely, they cut the tubing with a tubing cutter. They had to know what they were doing. It had to be at least two, because one person would not have been able to pick it up,” Brown said.
In the meantime, the church put up a new sign that reads: "Whoever stole our A C Unit: Keep it. It's hot where you're going."
