The Madison County Sheriff's Department is issuing an advisory, as more air conditioner thefts continue to be reported. Most are occurring in the older part of Godfrey in the northern areas, but investigators have not determined if there is a reason behind that, or if it is merely coincidence.
Humbert Road, the Springhaven Subdivision, and several other area roadways have been the target of thieves. Lieutenant Kris Tharp of the Sheriff's Department says there are things you as a homeowner can do to protect your investment.
Police report about 20 air conditioning thefts in the Godfrey area since the beginning of the year. They are looking for some suspicious persons and vehicles, including a gray colored Chrysler Town & Country Van, a dark colored 4-door passenger car, and most recently, a green colored pick-up with 2 black male suspects. If you can add anything to the investigation, you are urged to call the anonymous tip line at 296-3000.
