Parts of air conditioning units are being stolen throughout Laurens County.

What’s worse, the thieves are targeting churches. Six churches have been robbed of various air conditioning pieces since last Friday.

Officials at the Laurens County Sheriff’s Department say stolen AC units are common during the summer months, but for these robberies it’s a case of scrap metal prices being at an all time high.

Captain Stan Wright says, “I guess it’s easy pickings and they look at it as an easy target…something they can do pretty quick and go and get whatever amount they’re going to get and maybe move on to the next target.”
