Police: Man Arrested Sought Remote for Stolen TV


SALEM, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Salem man has been arrested after he came looking for the remote control for a neighbor’s stolen television.

The Salem News reports Miguel Suarez is facing charges including receiving stolen property and malicious destruction of property.

Police say the TV was stolen Friday after its owner told Suarez that she’d be out. But they say on Sunday, Suarez barged into the apartment and said he was searching for the remote. When his neighbor said the thieves took it, Suarez allegedly said “No, they didn’t.”

Police say Suarez briefly ran into his bedroom when they visited Monday. Police say they later found the damaged TV outside, after it apparently was tossed out Suarez’s sixth floor window.

His attorney says Suarez denies the allegations and pleaded not guilty at his arraignment.
