JONESBORO, Ark. – Whether they were junkies looking for a quick fix or just dishonest people, thieves made new victims in Jonesboro this week.

A homeowner selling a property at the 2400-block of Mary Jane Drive became a target for thieves after they lifted the entire air conditioner unit from the property.

The unit was valued at over $1000, making the theft a felony.

It wasn’t the only theft reported to JPD Tuesday, however. Authorities visited an apartment at the 500-block of Meadowbrook Street Tuesday about a residential burglary, where the victim came home to find her front door kicked open. Items in the house had been gone through but nothing appeared to be stolen.

If you spot the stolen AC unit, or you know who has been breaking into others’ homes, contact Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
