The Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigation Unit is investigating at least four thefts that have occurred over the past three weeks.
A suspect(s) have been stealing heating/air units from local commercial properties. These suspects are removing the units intact. Investigators believe these units are not being scrapped and are being reused or sold to unknowing customers. To date, the estimated loss exceeds $50,000.
An eyewitness stated that a white male, mid 50's, driving a older, possibly 80's model gray Ford pick-up, was seen fleeing the scene of one of these thefts.
A cash reward is being offered for any information on these stolen units or suspect(s) identity. Contact Detective Matt Jenkins at 423 303-3134 with information.
