Two charged in Anne Arundel air conditioner theft

A man and woman from Severn were arrested after they were caught stealing air conditioners they planned to loot for scrap copper from a Hanover business, the Anne Arundel police announced Thursday.

Officers responding to a report of a theft at Chilltrol Heating and Air Conditioning in the 7700 block of Old Telegraph Road at around 5:58 a.m. on Wednesday spoke with a person who saw two people loading air conditioners into a pickup truck, police said.

The witness provided a description of the truck and police located it, according to authorities.

They found seven air conditioners, police said, which Chilltrol employees identified as theirs.

The suspects, David F. Burrows, 46, and Jeanne Z. Simms, 45, both of Severn, were arrested and charged with trespassing and theft, according to a press release.

Earlier this month, Anne Arundel police charged two brothers with stealing church air conditioners to take and sell their copper parts.

I hope they spend their jail time in a cell where the air conditioner was stolen.
