LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Diboll man accepted a five-year prison sentence in connection to him teaming up with his brother to steal an air-conditioning unit from a church.

David O'Dell Reppond III, 35, accepted a five-year prison sentence on probation revocation. He also pleaded guilty to felony theft and accepted a one-year state jail sentence.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, David Odell Reppond, 34, and his brother, Daniel Adam Reppond, 26, stole the unit from Concord Baptist Church, located at 203 FM 2743, in November 2010. A person caught them loading it into an older model blue Dodge van and confronted them.

While the person was talking to David Reppond, Daniel Reppond slashed the tire on their vehicle, according to the report. When the person left to check on their vehicle, the brothers left in the van, the report stated.

Deputy Chris Wade was dispatched the church on a theft-in-progress call, just after 8 a.m. Tuesday. When Wade arrived, he learned the vehicle had left the scene with the unit.

Wade located the suspect vehicle at 8:20 a.m., traveling northbound on FM 2109, and stopped it, with Sheriff Kent Henson's help.

Henson and Wade found the unit in the back of the van and arrested the brothers.

Daniel Reppond accepted a five-year probation sentence in November 2010.
