A man was charged with shoplifting Friday after allegedly walking out of an Eagan store with a television in his pants.
On Dec. 5, Eric Lee King, a 21-year-old from Columbia Heights, walked out of a Wal-Mart in Eagan on with a 19-inch television in his pants, the Star Tribune reported.
According to the criminal complaint, a police officer was outside the store and noticed King walking strangely. When asked to stop, King ignored the officer.
After handcuffed, the officer noticed King had a square item stuffed into his pants- a 19-inch flat-screen television.
King also had other items in his trousers, among them a TV remote control, power cords, and a bottle of brake fluid, and two pills later determined to be Xanax, the Pioneer Press said.
