POLICE: Louisville man stole A/C units from Hazelwood Center

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say he took several air conditioner units from a state-run facility.

According to an arrest warrant, the thefts took place between Jan. 5 and Feb. 3. Police say 48-year-old Anthony J. Hill took air conditioners from the Hazelwood Center, an intermediate care facility for the mentally challenged, located on Bluegrass Ave., near Manslick Rd.

Police say Hill was trespassing when he took the units from the maintenance area of the center. On Feb. 3, security employees at the center allegedly caught Hill in the act as he was placing air conditioners in the back of his truck, and confronted him.

Police say Hill quickly drove away, but not before employees were able to take down his license plate number, and a description of his vehicle.

Hill had been selling the air conditioner units for scrap at ISA Recycling. In total, the Hazelwood Center suffered over $10,000 worth in losses from the alleged thefts.

Police say they were able to identify Hill as a suspect, since he had to provide his identification to the recycling center.

A warrant was issued for his arrest on May 17. He was taken into custody on Monday, Nov. 20, and charged with theft by unlawful taking.
