• 50 old TVs mysteriously appear on neighborhood's porches

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Police in Virginia say more than 50 television sets have been mysteriously placed on front porches in a neighborhood outside Richmond.

    Henrico County police Lt. Matt Pecka said residents found older model televisions outside their front doors Sunday morning. He told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that video from one doorbell camera showed a person wearing TV-shaped headgear while dropping off a TV set.

    Police believe that more than one person is responsible. A similar incident occurred in a nearby neighborhood last year.

    It's unclear if the incident is a crime. Pecka said that dropping off the televisions on front porches is "at most" illegal dumping.

    Most of the TVs will be recycled. But a couple residents indicated they would keep their televisions for now.
