Theft of refrigerant out of air conditioners continues to stay on a steady rise.
After an entire day of a family's A/C unit was blowing hot air into their residence they called a heating and cooling company to find out what the issue could be.
When a service man arrived he found caps and a plastic bag around the unit. Someone had stolen two pounds worth of refrigerant from the unit to get high.
It cost the family about 150 dollars to correct the situation.
They now have locking service caps on their units.
