Air conditioner thefts in Va. Beach

Virginia Beach police are investigating the theft of dozens of air-conditioning units throughout the city in the past four months.

Police say thieves have stolen 65 units worth more than $200,000 from businesses and homes since May 1.

In some cases several units were taken from businesses at one time. Most of the units were broken down into parts, while some were taken whole.

Police spokesman Adam Bernstein told The Virginian-Pilot that most of the thefts occurred in the city's northwest corner.
