MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Two brothers were charged with stealing hundreds of air conditioning units.

Jerald and Terrance McDaniels were both charged with theft of property of more than $60,000.

Memphis Police busted the brothers with a trailer full of 492 air conditioning units valued at over $250,000.  They were being stored in a trailer parked in a lot on Winchester in Hickory Hill.

The trailer was stolen Wednesday.  Police tracked it to Walls, Mississippi then followed it back on Highway 61 into Memphis.

Police tried to pull over the trailer, but it took off down Winchester before weaving through a series of neighborhood streets.  Police said the brothers bailed on Lakeview.
