It took two days to steal the air conditioning

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) - A Mobile skin care and plastic surgery center was hit by a thief over the weekend.

A man decided to steal two air conditioning units from The Martin Center on University Boulevard but it took him two days to finish the job.

Surveillance video shows the man in a black Z71 Chevy pickup loading up a large AC unit this past Saturday night around 7 o'clock.  He had spent about 40 minutes at the center working to cut through the copper and electrical lines that connected the unit to the building.  

Then on Sunday evening, he came back, spent several more minutes, and loaded up a second smaller AC unit.

While his visits are caught on security cameras they failed to get a good shot of his face.  Some shots show his face obscured by an umbrella, but employees speculate that was not an attempt to hide his face as much as it was an attempt to keep the rain off.

He appears to be a white man in his upper twenties to thirties and smokes.  

If you can help identify the man contact Mobile Police at 251-208-7211.
