GEORGETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

One man has been arrested and a woman is on the run for taking air conditioning units from churches.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office received information from the Pierce Township Police Department concerning a van that was seen on security tapes from the Living Church of Five Mile during an attempted theft of the central air unit on Jan. 13. That information led police to a suspect, Jamie Prokop, 41, of Amelia.

Prokop was arrested on March 7 and is currently being held at the Brown County Adult Detention Center on a $10,000 bond. Prokop has also been charged in the Breaking and Entering and Theft of another central air unit from the First Baptist Church of Fayetteville which occurred on October 16, 2011.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office has filed felony Breaking and Entering and Theft charges against Christina Laub, 25, of Amelia, who was also involved in the Breaking & Entering and Thefts from the churches. 

Laub remains at large at this time.  Anyone with information as to her whereabouts are asked to contact the Brown County Sheriff's Office Investigation Unit at 937-378-4435 Ext. 130.
