Theft of commercial air conditioner from Avila Road.

The Lower Paxton Police are investigating the theft of a commercial sized air conditioner and copper pipe from the rear of the former Villa Theresa Nursing Home, located on Avila Road. In this case, person(s) unknown between October 16 and 20th, on two seperate occassions took an air conditioner unit and copper pipe, from the rear of the building, that was still hooked up to the building. Due to the size of the unit taken, a large truck was most likely used and probably more than one person was involved.

From our experience, the items were stolen to be sold as scrap at a metal recycler.

We encourage the public to be alert for these types of thefts and to call 911 if they see suspicious activity linked to this type of crime. If anyone has information about this or other crimes, contact us at 717-657-5656 or on our TIP LINE at 717-635-2606.
