Thieves Prepare for Summer Early by Plundering A/C Unit

When that perfect hand comes along, you bet and you bet big, then you take the A/C.
After living in Houston for almost my entire life, I have accepted the fact that this city is gets too damn hot for too damn long. But, like everybody else, I just bitch and moan, until I finally accept it and I grab a cold beer and call it a day.

Some have other ideas.

According to a report from KPRC, an air conditioning unit was stolen in a northeast Houston shopping center located on Royal Forest Drive and Kingwood Drive on Wednesday.

I smell an elaborate heist (someone call Scooby and the Gang!).

A George Clooney-like figure is anticipating how hot it will get. He meets with his Brad Pitt-like buddy in a bar, who agrees that the temperatures in Houston will get too damn high. Nine members, a gigantic van and one rainy night later, problem solved. Police arrived early in the morning only to find debris from the unit.

While some people just accept the forthcoming heat, others have plans in mind to combat it. The crime is still under investigation, but rest assured, the Andy Garcia of this heist is super pissed and will be sweating it out for quite some time.

Confiscate every pair of shoes, slippers, and really thick socks perp owns. Make perp take a walk around the block. On paved surfaces only. In July. Alternately, make perp take same barefoot walk at any time of year while every child in a 10-mile radius strews their entire collective stash of Legos in perp's path.

They should be made to work in the hot Houston sun seven days per week and 10 hours per day throughout the summer helping to repair the homes of the poor and elderly. They should made to help install A/C units, paint, roofing, yard work, plumbing, sheetrock, flooring etc...

They should be put in an un-air conditioned cell and kept there for an entire Houston summer. Solitaire confinement. Absolutely no air conditioning or fans!

I don't know but my parents a/c unit and their next doors unit was stolen in Spring Shadows in the Spring Branch area. My parents house is for sale and they are elderly and it was a very hard hit to their income. Imagine trying to sell a house without a/c. My father was very upset. Now he's afraid they will do it again. They removed his fence to get to it!
