In Franklin County, police are investigating a string of thefts involving air conditioning units from churches and other businesses.
Thieves took three A/C units late Sunday night into Monday morning from New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Benton as well as from the Sweetwater Bar and Grill.
These burglaries come after a string of A/C unit thefts earlier this month.
Authorities did not say if the incidents are related, but they say the culprits are likely selling the copper and other parts for scrap.
