Baton Rouge police are trying to identify two people seen on a security camera stealing air-conditioning units from 2222 Eastgate Dr. at about 8:20 p.m. on Sept. 15.

Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola said the thieves were seen leaving in a two-tone Chevrolet extended cab pickup truck.

Coppola said police have seen a recent spike in air-conditioning unit thefts, which most of the times are stolen to re-sell the copper in them. However, the units stolen were new, so investigators do not know the intent of the thieves, Coppola said.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police at 389-3824 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
