(COLDWATER) - Michigan State Police troopers from the Coldwater Post say they have investigated several thefts of air conditioning units within the past six months in Branch County. The latest took place recently on Prairie River Road in Bronson Township. Troopers are also looking into the theft of a Consumers Energy utility pole from private property on Dotson Drive in Sherwood Township. The pole was blown over during a storm on June 30th. Witnesses saw a full sized pickup truck, dark or two toned in color, dragging the pole east bound on Dotson Drive. Troopers say the pickup was occupied by two men, one was possibly in his 20's. Anybody with information on these crimes is asked to call the Michigan State Police at (517) 278-2373.
