Hallandale Businesses: Thieves Targeting Air Conditioning Units

  • HALLANDALE BEACH (CBS4) – Several businesses in Hallandale Beach are being forced to shell out thousands of dollars after thieves brazenly ripped off their air conditioning units.

    The thieves likely sold the parts for a few bucks.

    Giovanna Benza, owner of Universal Tile & Stone Group, showed us surveillance video captured outside her store early Thanksgiving morning.

    Over more than an hour video cameras capture two men, wearing tight hoodies to conceal their heads and faces, taking apart two AC units and carting away the parts — coils, compressors and copper tubing – on foot.
