Copper Thefts-Marking A/C Units
Area: Zone 3
To deter copper thefts: Turn off the unit and use fluorescent
rustoleum paint on the a/c coils. One can spray on the address or phone number
(something identifiable) and keep a record of serial numbers of a/c units, and
take photos of them in case of theft. Property owners should check vacant
properties often to ensure they are secure.
Another deterrent is to install a pressure switch which
will activate the alarm in case the unit is tampered with.
We encourage neighborhood watch programs and please
report suspicious activity via 911 immediately.
