Unbelievable! Dude Leaves Store Wtih 19-Inch TV In His Pants

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Minnesota man was charged for allegedly trying to leave a store with a 19-inch TV in his pants, police said.

Eric Lee King, 21, of Columbia Heights was charged with misdemeanor shoplifting and fifth-degree felony possession of a controlled substance Friday in Dakota County District Court, St. Paul Pioneer Press reported."


I admire this thief`s chutzpah, I would be too terrified to shoplift a pen.

The logistics of cramming a 19-inch (needless to say it was a flat-screen) TV in your pants and being able to walk out of the store are mind-boggling.

King managed to leave the store without attracting the attention of the loss-prevention officers, but he was nabbed in the parking lot by a cop who noticed he was walking funny. The cop also found a remote control, power cords and brake fluid on King.

After stuffing the huge TV down his pants, you`d think the thief would have got out of the store as soon as possible, but he stopped to steal brake fluid.

King had a bottle of Xanax in his pockets, don`t do drugs kids you might end up doing something crazy like this fool.
