TULSA -- A north Tulsa non-profit that services disabled adults had their fourth air conditioner stolen this morning. 

A surveillance camera at Bridges caught the thief climbing onto the roof and taking the unit.

They had three units stolen in the fall. 

"It makes you really sad that we have to go the extra mile just to replenish a basic need," Kari Jordan, CEO for Bridges said. 

Meanwhile, their employees are forced to work in the heat.

The staff does not believe the suspect targets their property because of their clients specifically. But nonetheless, it is heartbreaking for the staff. 

Replacing that unit is going to take away money from their hundreds of employees. 

They will have to depend on their upcoming fundraiser to pay for the new AC unit and find a way to keep that one from being stolen too.

"Re-establishing where that air conditioning unit is on top of the roof whether it's putting it inside," Jordan said. "We're not really sure what the answer is, but there has to be a way to protect those units."
