Thieves stripped the copper out of an expensive air conditioner just days after it was installed by a Tulsa church.

Maintenance crews showed up this morning at First Baptist Church's "Clothing Closet" at 61st and Mingo.

Not only was the copper missing, they noticed the shed had been broken into and some lawn equipment had also been stolen. The minister says they won't stop serving the community.

"We just made a replacement, and repairs so that we were able to meet the community needs, and yeah this comes along and it's a bit of a setback, but we'll push forward on this," said campus pastor Bryan Intemann.

So far police have no leads in the theft.
