The weather is is turning colder, but that isn't stopping thieves from stealing more than $37,000 worth of air conditioning units from homes in Remsenburg and Westhampton.
According to Southampton police, between Sept. 7 and Sept. 13, police received seven calls from victims with complaints of their air conditioning units being swiped.
Of the victims, two on Cedar Lane in Remsenburg told police that they had their units stolen on consecutive days.
Other homes victimized were on Ring Neck Road, Stores Lane and Remsen Lane, all in Remsenburg, and Fiddler Crab Trail and North Quarter Road in Westhampton.
The units stolen ranged in price from $1,100 to $6,000.
In the North Quarter Road case, the perpetrator may have left a cigarette butt on the ground near where the unit was taken out of its frame. With the victim stating that no one in his home smokes, police said they took it into evidence.
So far, police have not made any arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
