Clearwater, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Police are looking for an unidentified male after he allegedly stole a 32-inch television set from Target and made a hasty get-away on a skateboard.
According to Clearwater Police, surveillance cameras at a Clearwater, Florida Target store captured the action as the suspect entered the store, skated down a few of the isles and chose a 32-inch flat screen television as his loot.
The heist hit a scary moment when the suspect pulled a utility knife on a store employee who confronted him near the exit.
The man entered the store just before closing and exited the store on foot. As store employees ran after him in hot pursuit, the suspect hopped on a skateboard with television in hand and escaped into the night.
"He gets bonus points for being creative, but he stole a TV and put people's lives at risk with a knife and we're going to get him," said Clearwater Police spokesperson Rob Shaw.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20's standing about 5-feet 11-inches tall and weighing 150 pounds.
