TV snatched from under police

August 30, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Police in Florida say a burglar who made off with a man's valuables returned to the home later and snatched what he couldn't carry on his first trip: a 100-pound plasma-screen TV.

A Pensacola police investigator was on the scene when the robber came back hours after the first burglary.

The man who lived at the house, Steve Fluegge, said he was shocked the burglar came back. Fluegge's wallet, watch and video game system had already been taken.

Investigators had left the TV in the backyard, where the burglar had put it, so they could dust for fingerprints. Police, who canvassed the neighborhood but found nothing, have offered to pay for the TV.
