At approximately 2:20 a.m. on Tuesday, April 12, 4 black males cut through the exterior walls of Wittichen Supply Company at 458 Bic Road in Dothan, Alabama, and stole over $30,000 of Freon 22. These men were in a dark colored late model Nissan Altima and a dark colored late model crew cab Dodge Ram pickup truck. They were there for over an hour, as they cut 5 holes in the building before gaining access. They were also seen watching the building the night before at about the same time. This is the 2nd time in less than a year that this branch has been burglarized, with large amounts of Freon 22 taken both times. Wittichen Supply Company is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved. Please contact Officer Charlie Faulkner of the Dothan Police Department at 334-615-3646 with any information. The demand for Freon 22 is exceeding supply due to government regulations requiring its phase-out, resulting in rapidly increasing cost, and theft. We ask that any HVAC contractors who are approached with deals that are “too good to be true” on this product to please help us catch these thieves. Click images to enlarge.
