A thief looking for loot found it at a county dump site.

An employee arrived at the Center Road dump site about 6 a.m. Friday to find the building’s air conditioner torn apart, according to a Bartow County Sheriff’s Office incident report. The man said the exterior shell was the only remaining portion of the unit.

When questioned about suspects, the employee told the deputy that he did not have one person in mind because of the amount of theft that occurs at the site.

According to the employee, the unit had been working Thursday.
