Man Caught Sneaking TVs Out Back Door of Rochester Hills Store
Then, on the way to the Oakland County Jail, he complained of chest pains and was re-routed to hospital.
A 48-year-old Pontiac man was arrested Saturday afternoon after he was caught pushing two 50-inch TVs out the back door of the Rochester Hills Kmart.
According to a report from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, it was a repeat crime: the man was also seen on camera on Friday and Saturday morning pushing two TVs out the same back door.
The incident was reported at 2:03 p.m. Saturday; sheriff's deputies responded to the scene to learn that a loss prevention officer for the store had stopped the man and an accomplice, but the two had fled in a pickup that was later stopped by sheriff's deputies.
One of the suspects, the Pontiac man, was arrested for several felony warrants, including the retail frauds.
While being transported to jail, the man complained of chest pains and was transported to Crittenton Hospital, the report stated.
The incident remains under investigation.
