We've all done it. When you want to appear busy or just be left alone, you talk on or pretend to talk on the phone. Well, it seems like that's a good practice when you want to steal a TV from Walmart.

A man in Lufkin did just that. As you'll be able to see in the video below, the man plain as day walks to the electronics section in Walmart, grabs a 46-inch Sanyo TV and makes his way out of the store ... all while being on the phone.

There's no way to tell if the guy was just pretending or was calling his getaway driver. Police and witnesses said he got away in a silver SUV, possibly a Toyota 4-Runner.

Anyone with information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator can call Crime Stoppers of Lufkin at (936-639-TIPS.
