Small man tries to steal big-screen TV, failure ensues

"You're not thinking about stealing me, are you?"

Swiping televisions used to be easier when they didn't all used to be so friggin' huge -- especially if you're as relatively small of stature as a suspected robber who was in the midst of trying to manhandle a 46-inch set in Boulder when the home's owner confronted him earlier this week.

According to Boulder Police Department spokeswoman Sarah Huntley, the man in question, who split after being discovered in the act of removing the TV from its eye-level cubby (he remains at large), is described as being approximately five-feet-six-inches tall and 130 pounds.

If that's accurate, the TV he coveted was almost as big as him. Next time, pal, try stealing something a little smaller than your size.
