Witnesses thwarted a suspected thief as he tried to steal a television set from a Cumberland County store, police said.

Troy Nicholas, 50, of Glen Rock, tried to run out of the Mechanicsburg Walmart with the 55-inch flat screen Sunday, but the witnesses prevented him from taking the TV, Silver Spring Township police said.

Nicholas then fled in his vehicle and was stopped by officers a few minutes later in Middlesex Township, police said.

He was charged with one felony count of retail theft and placed in Cumberland County Prison on $10,000 cash bail.
