Maintenance came by and fixed my ac. Said the panel was pryed open and the coolant was empty. I knew some guys in high school that did stuff like that. I have no idea why they would do that when they could get weed or acid anywhere.

1. I know that people pry open AC units to steal the copper tubing inside.

There's about $100 worth of scrap copper inside your average air conditioner.

Maybe they started to take the copper and were scared off.

Seems like a lot of effort to go to when you could just buy a can of stuff to inhale at the store.

Who's going to inhale a can of scrap copper?

I mean really!

6. I bet a quick search of the local hospitals will find the crooks
They'll be the ones with one hand over their face and the other hand holding their frozen nose!
