A child care facility in Camden County was forced to close Thursday after thieves destroyed their air conditioning units.

The owner of the Goddard School on Chews Landing Road in Laurel Springs, N.J. says the burglars yanked the parts out of five machines and rendered them useless.

"We had children here, we had parents here, and we had to turn everybody away," said the school's owner, Kelly Vicario. "And this is the first week of our summer camp so a lot of kids are really disappointed."

Vicario told Action News the center was looking into renting window units so they can reopen tomorrow.
