Several Habitat for Humanity houses under construction were burglarized earlier this week.
Kevin Andrews, the supervisor of Habitat for Humanity, told Columbus police that someone had stolen copper wiring from the air conditioning units of four houses under construction on Youmans Street.
Between 5 p.m. Wednesday and 8:30 a.m. Thursday, an unknown person entered the unlocked storage area doors to the housing units and damaged the walls to gain entry to each individual air conditioning unit.
The houses sustained about $1,000 worth of damage each. About 12 pounds of copper was taken, estimated to be worth about $20.

Police have no suspects in the case at this time.
