WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man has admitted he stole copper inside nearly 70 air conditioners earlier this year.

Forty-one-year-old Byron Stuckey will be sentenced Aug. 30 for felony theft and attempting to elude officers.

Stuckey was captured July 11 after stealing copper from an air conditioner at southeast Wichita house.

Police say they believe Stuckey stole at least 68 air conditioners, including from several churches. The cost of replacing the damaged units exceeded $100,000.

Stuckey pleaded guilty last Friday in Sedgwick County District Court.
