JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro man noticed an important component missing from his rental property Friday. 

According to the incident report, the victim told police someone stole his air conditioning unit from a house in the 100-block of Hester Street. 

He said it happened sometime Thursday night or Friday. 

An officer noticed wires that went to the unit were cut.

The report states the unit is worth $4,500.

A neighbor's guest told the victim he confronted a black woman and two black men acting “suspicious” around the property, according to the report.

The woman reportedly asked the guest if the victim’s house was for rent while the two men went around to the back of the house.

They were seen driving a black Ford Crown Victoria or a Mercury Grand Marquis.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
