Since March, the city of Rincon has had nine incidents of air conditioner thefts. Each of these thefts is believed to have occurred during the night, and all but one was taken from one of the businesses along Columbia Avenue.
Two white males were observed loading an air conditioner unit into the back of a 1990s model green Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with a black bed liner and a trailer hitch on the rear bumper.
Video surveillance footage was captured from a business next door.
