Suspects sought in theft of air conditioning units

COTTONWOOD – Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to burglary call around 6 a.m. July 5 at Connolly Electric regarding the theft of eight air conditioning condenser units.

According to a news release from YCSO, employees of the business located South Union Drive in Cottonwood indicated that the burglary “likely occurred July 4 around midnight.”

The AC units weight about 200 pounds each and are brand new in their original box, said

Dwight D’Evelyn, YCSO Media Relations Coordinator in the release.

“Upon arrival on July 5, employees noticed a door open in a storage building used by the company. Once inside, employees confirmed that eight AC condenser units were missing. The back door was also found open and the bottom portion of a chain link fence that surrounds the yard had been propped up, apparently allowing someone to crawl under the fence,” stated the release.

During the investigation, said YCSO, deputies gathered that a truck and flatbed-style trailer was likely used to move the stolen property.

Deputies continue working leads regarding the suspects and suspect vehicle, said D’Evelyn.
