PEORIA, Ill -- A Peoria County grand jury has indicted two local men for air conditioner theft.

Terrance Hollister, 40, and Louis Brown,19, have each been charged with one count each of theft and criminal damage to property.

When the pair was arrested late last month, Police said they could tie Brown and Hollister to nine cases of air conditioner thefts.

They also said there could be more than one group of people stealing air conditioning units to re-sell their copper and other metal parts.
