Weatherford PD requesting help solving A/C thefts

July 12, 2011 by Anonymous

From the Weatherford Police Department
In recent months, the Weatherford Police Department has seen an increase in thefts of air conditioning units and air conditioning parts from vacant houses and businesses during the night time hours. Since April 2011, more than 15 reports of stolen air conditioners and A/C parts have been received from various businesses along Santa Fe Dr, N Bankhead Dr, south of Interstate 20 and multiple vacant homes and houses under construction totaling thousands of dollars in loss.

Investigators believe the increase in these types of thefts has to do with the increase in price for scrap metal.

The Weatherford Police Department is asking for help in combating this type of crime. Anyone who sees any type of suspicious activity, particularly in or around the business districts during non-business hours, vacant residences or new homes under construction, should call the police department immediately. Call 911 if the crime is in progress, or the non-emergency line at 817-598-4300 if simplyt supplying information.

The police department asks that residents not interfere with anyone suspected of committing burglary or theft, but provide the dispatcher with the most information possible, such as the location of the suspicious activity, the number of persons involved and their descriptions, vehicle description, vehicle license plate (if it can be safely obtained), etc.

Anyone with information leading to the arrest and indictment of the persons involved in these crimes can can contact Parker County Crime Stoppers today at 817-599-5555 or 1-800-942-STOP and be eligible for a reward up to $1000. Callers can remain anonymous.
