Associated Press News Release
CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- A skateboarding man grabbed a 32-inch TV from a Super Target in Clearwater, hopped on a skateboard and rolled through the store.
Police say the man walked into the store around 11 p.m. Wednesday, just as the store was closing. He headed to the electronics section and took the Element LCD television. An employee confronted him as he approached the door, but he flashed a utility knife at her and kept going.
Clearwater Detective John Brown says the suspect "gets an A for creativity." But he committed a serious crime and police are searching for him.
They say the man was riding a brown skateboard with orange-yellow wheels.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Clearwater police at 727-562-4242.
