Deputies searching for man who stole TV's from Palm Harbor Walmart

Times staff

PALM HARBOR — Detectives are searching for a man accused of stealing two large TV's last month from the Palm Harbor Walmart.

The man stole the 39-inch LCD televisions from the store at 35404 U.S. 19 on June 18, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. He loaded them onto the bed of a dark-colored pickup truck that deputies believe may be a Ford F-150. He then jumped into the bed, but left the tailgate unlocked.

As the driver drove out of the parking lot, the thief tumbled out of the truck, but later stood up and jumped back into the bed, deputies said.

It is unknown whether the man was hurt.

The Sheriff's Office described him as a partially bald, middle-aged man with black and white hair. He was last seen wearing a black shirt that read, "Aero California Riders" on the front.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sheriff's Office detective Adam Sarlo of the burglary and pawn unit at (727)582-6200. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (800)873-8477.
