The video pretty much says it all — too big a TV and too small a getaway car.
Perhaps the thief — or thieves — hadn’t considered the size of the large-screen TV they clearly wanted and the small four-door escape car they had.
The incident happened Nov. 29 at a home on Gable Lane in Fort Washington, Md. Prince George’s County police put out a video showing it unfold.
In the video, a man in a hooded sweatshirt, black pants and yellow gloves can be seen getting out of a car and running to the front of a house. He comes back to the car with a large TV box and falls while trying to get to the car.
Then his real struggle begins, as he tries to get it into the car’s back seat — to no avail — and then tries the trunk.
