CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Scrappers hit retail stores

(WXYZ) - Detroit Police are looking for at least two suspects that scaled the Tower Center retail stores, gutting air conditioning units for scrap parts.

Video from Tower Center management shows two men climbing a fire escape Thursday, June 12 in the early morning hours and spending around 40 minutes gutting four air conditioners for scrap parts of copper and aluminum.

Scrappers have taken their toll of Detroit businesses. Tower Center management tells Action News this is the fourth time scrappers have hit their high-level AC units. Each commercial air condition unit costs $30,000 to replace.

Tower Center has four atop their building in the retail district of West Grand River and Greenfield.

Detroit Police are investigating. If you can identify the individuals in the video above, call police.
