Police: Columbia Heights man caught with stolen TV in pants
A Columbia Heights man was arrested for allegedly stealing a 19-inch television – by shoving it down his pants.
Twenty-one-year-old Eric Lee King was walking out of an Eagan business on Dec. 5, 2011, when he dropped a box of candy in the parking lot. An Eagan police officer was in the area and let King know, but King kept walking as if he didn’t hear the officer, according to the complaint.
The police officer said King was walking “straight-legged, shuffling his feet, and not bending his knees.” The officer also noticed that King’s pants were falling down and he was trying to hold them up.
