The Tryon Police Department is asking for the public’s help in solving the larceny of the air conditioning unit from the roof of the Tryon Antique Mall.
Tryon Police Chief Jeff Arrowood said sometime between 5 p.m. Sunday, June 24 and 8 a.m. Monday, June 25 someone stole the large commercial unit off the roof of the building.
Tryon Antique Mall is located in the shopping center at the state line off U.S. 176.
Arrowood said it is not known how the suspect(s) accessed the roof to take the unit. Arrowood also said most likely the unit was stolen to sell for the metal, a trend that has been occurring in South Carolina.
The suspect(s) will face larceny charges if apprehended.
Anyone who may have seen suspicious activity at the shopping center Sunday night is urged to contact the Tryon Police Department at 828-859-9195.
