PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson County deputies said they spent some time looking for men accused of trying to steal a HVAC unit from a Piedmont home Saturday night, but the suspects got away.

Neighbors spotted thieves leaving a vacant trailer with a HVAC unit Saturday night along Astalot Drive near Lilly Maid Drive in Piedmont and tried to stop them, according to Lt. Sheila Cole with the Anderson County Sheriff's Office.

Cole said the neighbors chased after the suspects who fled in a pickup truck with the unit in the back and a wreck ensued.

The two men ran away and deputies arrived to search for them with dogs and helicopter, but the men were not located, according to Cole.

She said no one was injured. No other details have been released.

Anyone with information about the theft or case should call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
