Police in Somerset and Pulaski county are investigating the theft of some very large industrial sized items.

Police there say late Tuesday night someone ripped apart seven industrial sized air conditioning units from several businesses in the area.

One of the businesses hit was Buyers Paradise in Somerset. The owner of the furniture store says the thieves simply destroyed two of his units, tearing them apart and ripping out all of the copper inside.

The owner says it will probably cost him nearly 20 thousand dollars to repair the damage to the units.
