This is NOT a crime blog.

Last week, there was a theft at Bobbie's Hair Design on The Avenue. The employees came in to start the day, and the place seemed a bit warm. All seemed well with the air conditioning settings, however, and it wasn't until someone went outside and noticed the whole air conditioning unit from out back had been stolen!

Keep in mind, dear readers, that this was NOT a window unit. We're talking a honkin' central air unit ripped up from the ground and hauled away.

I'm sure Bobbie would appreciate any leads anyone has. Rumor has it that later that day, an--ahem--known drug user was inexplicably seen driving around with a central air unit in the back of a pick up. Possibly, there was no connection, but there are plenty of folks who think differently.

Keep it cool, Hampdenites.

I'd be suspicious of some of the shady rehabbing going on in the neighborhood. Substance abusers fixing up a house with whatever they can find lying around or whatever happened to fall off a truck. And they work whatever hours they happen to be awake. There's a great example in the 3500 block of Hickory, but I'm sure it's not the only such "project."

yep i happen to live across from the $300,000 crack houses -- err "crack homes" with it's rowdy yet comical gang of drug addled and pickup truck parking challenged crew of "remodelers". and there is indeed a large AC unit in the back of the black pick up. come by the 3500 block of hickory if anyone want a photo if there is the possibility that its the unit in question.
