22-year-old Arthur Ulon Smith is charged with stealing two air conditioning units from Highland Hills Baptist Church on Briarcliff Road.
Bibb County Sheriff's Chief Deputy David Davis says the Sheriff's Office received a tip through their Email Update program that led to Smith's arrest.
"It may look like a regular workman, that's how a lot of these metal thieves operate, they look like somebody that's there doing service on an air conditioning unit and they will not even be noticed so if you see anybody, even if they have a sign on the truck call the sheriff's office."
Smith is being held at the Bibb County LEC. He's being charged with Theft by Taking Felony, Criminal Trespass, and Battery Family Violence.
