    Surveillance video released by Maryland police showed a man struggling to steal a large 4K television set on Nov. 29, WBAL reported.

    According to the Prince George's County police blog, the man grabs a large box at a residence in Fort Washington. As he hustles back to his car, the man stumbles and falls over.

    The man regains his footing and tries to jam the unwieldy box into the trunk of his car. “He repeatedly tries to fit the box in his awaiting getaway car,” the police wrote in the blog.

    After several attempts, the man manages to fit the television set into the back seat of his car and drives away, WBAL reported. The back door remained open as the man made his getaway, the television station reported.

    There is no word whether the television set was in working order after the ordeal.
