Earlier this week a 33 year old man was arrested for allegedly “ingesting refrigerant from a dismantled air conditioning unit.” He was charged with criminal mischief.
The owner of the business noticed the man with his mouth on the copper refrigerant line and it appeared he was huffing from the line. When the owner noticed that the A/C unit had been taken apart and the refrigerant line was bent, the man ran off. Deputies found him hiding in a neighbor’s shed.
