TVs stolen off truck waiting to make delivery in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA - Several TVs were stolen right off the back of a tractor trailer that was waiting to make a delivery in Philadelphia’s Burholme neighborhood early Friday morning.
It happened around 2 a.m. on the 2700 block of Commerce Way.
The driver of the tractor trailer tells FOX 29 he had pulled over to sleep and later felt something moving in the back of his truck. He then noticed a pickup truck behind him.
The driver says he opted against confronting the suspects, but shouted that he was calling police. At that time, he says multiple vehicles and suspects fled the scene.

Roughly 38 TVs were allegedly taken during the theft. It’s unclear how many may have been recovered.
