JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police arrested two men dismantling several air conditioning units.

According to the report, police were called out to Old Paragould Road on Sunday for two possibly armed men.

Officers met the victim who said he saw two men on his home security camera around his air conditioning unit.

The victim told police he has had issues recently with people dismantling air conditioning units and stealing the copper inside.

Two Jonesboro officers searched the area for the suspects.

The reports said the officers heard metal clanking and found two more air conditioning units pulled out and dismantled.

The officers then saw two male suspects trying to hide in tall grass in the distance.

When the officers approached the suspects, Robby Wayne Richardson, 47, laid on the ground.

However, the second suspect Gage Lee Glenn, 23, took off running.

Officer Bryan Davis saw Glenn throw something in the grass as he ran.

Davis eventually got Glenn to stop and he was taken into custody. 

Both Richardson and Glenn were taken the Craighead County Detention Center and charged with theft.

Glenn also faces a parole violation and fleeing charge.

Police recovered an orange drill where Davis saw Glenn throw something during the chase. ?
