BRADLEY COUNTY, Tenn. - Authorities in Bradley County are searching for thieves who have stolen multiple heating and air units from area churches.

A new heating and air unit had to be installed at Thompson Springs Baptist Church on Tuesday because someone stole the old unit last week. Authorities say it didn't stop there. Just a few miles down the road, Cedar Springs Baptist Church also has a brand new unit after theirs was stolen around the same time.

A few miles in the other direction three concrete slabs are all that's left at Union Grove Church of Christ after thieves got away with three units. "I feel sorry for these people cause anytime that you steal from God, you're gonna have to pay for it here or here after," Union Grove church elder, Bill Casteel says.
