Bowling Green Police say some time early in the week of May 20, someone stole the outside air conditioning units from the Iglesia La Hermosa in the 200 block of East 7th Street.

The suspects took the units apart to steal the copper and aluminum to sell as scrap metal. As church members went to the Wednesday night service, they noticed the air units not working.

Damage is estimated at $10,000. Precious metals continue to be popular items for thieves. These metals bring premium prices at recycling businesses.
