Thief runs off with church's A/C unit

Thefts of copper-rich air conditioning units are up this year across Pasco County, and churches aren't exempt. Officials at Covenant Christian Church say sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning, someone stole the $56,000 air conditioning unit at their church, 6814 Indiana Ave. When senior pastor Bob Panariello got to church about 9 a.m. Friday to prepare for a back to school supplies giveaway slated for today, he saw parts of the unit on the roof. Panariello called New Port Richey police, who said the unit was probably stolen to be stripped for copper parts. Tom McDonald, associate pastor, said it took the congregation about five months to raise money for it. On Friday, a repair man came out to replace the unit.
