Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

After living in Houston for almost my entire life, I have accepted the fact that this city is gets too damn hot for too damn long. But, like everybody else, I just bitch and moan, until I finally accept it and I grab a cold beer and call it a day.

Some have other ideas.

According to a report from KPRC, an air conditioning unit was stolen in a northeast Houston shopping center located on Royal Forest Drive and Kingwood Drive on Wednesday.

I smell an elaborate heist (someone call Scooby and the Gang!).

A George Clooney-like figure is anticipating how hot it will get. He meets with his Brad Pitt-like buddy in a bar, who agrees that the temperatures in Houston will get too damn high. Nine members, a gigantic van and one rainy night later, problem solved. Police arrived early in the morning only to find debris from the unit.

While some people just accept the forthcoming heat, others have plans in mind to combat it. The crime is still under investigation, but rest assured, the Andy Garcia of this heist is super pissed and will be sweating it out for quite some time.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
