Checking local police reports provided this morning to Z-1570, East Alton Police were holding 34 year old Michael Gray of the 2700 block of 9th in Wood River for intoxicated pedestrian.

Alton Police are warning residents to be on the lookout for thieves targeting air conditioning units.  A growing number of air conditioner thefts have been reported this fall, including two over the weekend in the city.  Authorities say there have been at least 90 air conditioner thefts in the city this year alone, easily beating last years number of just 27.   Police say scrap metal is the reason, and believe most of the stolen air conditioners are being taken to scrap businesses outside the area.     

There was no one new reported held in the Wood River Jail earlier this morning.
