50 old TVs mysteriously appear on porches

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. Video from one doorbell camera showed a person wearing TV-shaped headgear while dropping off a TV set.

One person joked that the man wants to be known at the "TV Santa Claus."

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 of residents actually said that they would keep their televisions for now.
