HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A man who investigators say showed up to take money in exchange for installing a new air conditioner has been charged with theft.

Authorities are searching for 31-year-old Christopher Cordova. Court documents show he took $2,000 from the victim who wanted a new air conditioner installed the next day.

That was on Aug. 12. As of now, Cordova is still missing.  

The victim says repeated attempts to contact Cordova were unsuccessful because his phone had been disconnected.
