Thieves have taken more than $100,000 worth of air conditioners, pipes and metal doorknobs from schools and businesses in South Los Angeles over the past two months, police said Friday.

The suspects sell the metal for scrap, said Detective Ike Withers of the Los Angeles Police Department's Southeast Station burglary squad.

The air conditioners were grabbed from the roofs of about four dozen businesses and schools by thieves who also targeted brass doorknobs because of their salvage value, Withers said.
