A La Grange teen is charged with theft after police say he allegedly unloaded a 32-inch TV from a delivery truck and attempted to run with with it. As employees at Rent-A-Center in La Grange loaded a truck about 2:50 p.m. Jan. 17, police say a 15-year-old white male removed a 32-inch Magnavox flat-screen TV from the back of the truck and attempted to flee the property.
Police recovered the TV from the side of the Rent-A-Center building in the 200 block of Creekside Place, where the juvenile allegedly laid it as he fled the scene. The juvenile, a La Grange resident, was cited for theft by unlawful taking and release to his father. Employees told police they are unsure if the television, valued at $958, sustained damage during the incident.
