Pastor "If you want to steal an air conditioner you have some serious issues"

(Portland, Oregon) Sometime after service on Sunday, metal thieves struck the Imigo Dei Community Center. Executive Pastor Luke Hendricks says they stole a 5-foot by 5-foot air conditioner meant to cool the sanctuary.
Hendricks say police told him, "We're not going to be able to recover this." He says police estimate the thieves probably only got about $50 for the scrap metal inside the unit.
Insurance will cover most of the cost for the unit but it will take time to replace it.
Hendricks had a simple message for whoever is responsible, "If you're hard up enough to steal an air conditioner, there's some serious issues in your life. I think we would love a shot to help you with those things"
If you know anything about who may be responsible, you're asked to call Portland Police.
