KENTWOOD — Authorities are seeking information on the theft of an air conditioning unit from Jewel Sumner High School in Kentwood earlier this week, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said Friday.
The 7 ½-ton unit and copper pipe inside it are worth about $7,500, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto said in a news release.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance footage to identify a suspect, Panepinto said. It is unclear how the thief managed to move the heavy air conditioner.
