Would-be thieves crash truck into a Fresno Rent-A-Center
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Police are looking for suspects who drove a pickup truck into a Central Fresno store, in an attempt to steal a big screen TV.
It happened at about 4:30 Friday morning at the Rent-A-Center store on Blackstone and McKinley.
An employee says the suspects tried to drive the truck into the store a number of times, causing damage to the furniture and appliances inside.
The suspects reportedly tried to steal a 60-inch TV, but couldn't because the store had taken precautions.
Marcos Santano said, "We actually do tie down our merchandise to prevent theft and obviously it worked."
There is no word on the dollar amount of damage caused.
