Suspect steals TV from Florida Target store, flees on skateboard (VIDEO)

CLEARWATER, FL - Florida police are looking for a thief who pulled an unusual heist this week.

Investigators say the suspect took a 32-inch TV from a Target store then escaped on a skateboard.

Surveillance video shows the thief enter the store carrying a skateboard under his arm around 11 p.m. as the store was closing.

The suspect browsed other parts of the store before heading to the TVs.

He's then seen riding his skateboard through the store holding the 32-inch TV in his hands.

Police say when an employee confronted him near the exit, the suspect brandished a utility knife and ran off.

He was only in the store for three minutes, last seen zipping down the road on the skateboard.
