NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The fans are going at Shorter College after a copper theft at the school's daycare program.
"The air conditioner is out in a building it's a 911 emergency," said school leader R.J. Stevenson.
Leaders say thieves hit three of their four AC units Wednesday.
"We are using that one air conditioning unit that is still intact, making sure the kids are in comfortable environments. So we consolidated some of our rooms," he explained.
This month, police say the school had already been hit twice. The school estimates thieves have caused up to $75,000 in damage.
College leaders say they are frustrated because the money used to replace the AC units could have been used somewhere else. But now the money has to go towards getting cool air back in their buildings.
"We are still going to maintain the commitment to our students, but we are going to have to be very creative in doing that," said Stevenson.
