Air conditioning is not the first thought to come to mind on a day when the high temperature will struggle to hit double digits.

But a Gloucester Township police report this week announced the alleged theft of several air-conditioning units from the VPR Commerce Center in the 1000 block of Lower Landing Road on Christmas Day.

A video surveillance camera captured the incident. 

"Just before 7 p.m. on Christmas night, cameras capture what appears to be an older four-door, light colored sedan, with a sunroof and dark bumpers, driving through the complex several times," police said. "At approximately 7 p.m., two unknown suspects exit the vehicle near the side of a building where several A/C units were once located, and then leave approximately seven minutes later."

"At approximately 7:55 p.m., a small white pickup, with a short cab, dark wheels, and a dark grill, backs up to the same area and two suspects exit the vehicle. The vehicle is backed up several more times, and then leaves the area at 8:05 p.m. with the A/C Units loaded in the bed of the truck."
