60 old TVs dumped outside homes… by man dressed as an old TV

According to NBC12, at least 60 residents in Virginia have woken up in the morning to see the retro screens sitting outside their front door.

Adrian Garner, who caught the culprit on a home security camera, said: “It was a guy dressed in a jumpsuit with a TV for a head. It’s the weirdest thing. He squats down, puts the TV there and walks off. It’s really weird.

“My first reaction was: ‘Did we order this?’ Not in an Amazon box, it was just kind of strange.”

Police officers have been doing the rounds to collect the abandoned TV sets.

“We have a team of officers out here working together, collecting the TVs. We’re upwards of 60 TVs so far,” Lieutenant Matt Pecka said.

Another resident Michael Kroll told NBC12 the prank was “kind of funny”.

He said: “I’m thinking it’s a senior prank, maybe senior year going in high school, or bored college kids before they go back to school trying to create a big buzz before they go back to college and say ‘Hey, look what I did.”

Police reportedly say they believe there is more than one culprit – and warn they could face charges of littering on private property or illegal dumping.
