Woman arrested for air conditioner theft

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police arrested a local woman this week on allegations she stole an air conditioner from a property owner.

April W. Hall, 21, of Tahlequah, was booked into jail for grand larceny, malicious injury to property, knowingly concealing stolen property, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Tahlequah Police Sgt. Steve Young’s affidavit indicates police were notified of a black truck that was carrying a stolen air conditioner early Tuesday morning. Police found the vehicle parked at a store.

Hall allegedly told police a woman named Ashley had given her the AC to scrap.

Tahlequah Police Lt. Billy Dowling went to an address on North Cedar Avenue, where Hall allegedly picked up the unit, and determined the residence was empty and the air conditioning had been removed.

The property owner then confirmed to police that the AC had been stolen.

Other stolen items were also found, including rebar, T-posts, a fan, and metal piping.

Officer Randy Tanner found a small lightbulb that had been hollowed out and contained burnt residue; along with a box with two syringes, a plastic bag and a spoon with burnt residue.
