The West Point Police Department is still investigating the burglaries of window air conditioning units in the last few months.

WPPD Assistant Chief Albert Lee said several more units had been stolen recently.

He said he believed they were being stolen to be resold.

"We're asking for your help," Lee said. "We know someone out there nows what's going on. We're just waiting for a break."

Lee said one of the stolen air conditioners is a Crosley 2500 BTU with the model or serial number #KK50611554.

Lee said another firearm was stolen on Monday.

He said a .9 mm Taurus PT111 with the serial number #TIR44435 was stolen from a back bedroom of a home on the 70 block of Critz Street.

Lee said a 2000 Jeep and 2016 Ford truck were broken into at approximately 1 p.m. also on Monday on the 700 block of East Brame Avenue.

"Something or someone spooked them and nothing was stolen," he said.

Anyone with any information about these or other crimes should contact WPPD at 494-1244 or the Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
