PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A woman who stole a 65-inch TV from a Fred Meyer store got help moving it from an unsuspecting passerby — who then watched her steal his van.
The incident unfolded in Orchards, Washington on Wednesday, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office told KOIN 6 News. As the woman pushed the large flat-screen down the street, she flagged down a driver who stopped to help. When the TV was inside his van, she took off without him.
Clark County deputies began a chase but stopped the pursuit when it got too dangerous, officials told KOIN 6 News.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Tanya.Johnson@clark.wa.gov
