Police in California say thieves who stole a large television from a Sacramento home were thwarted when it wouldn't fit in the getaway car.

Investigators say the burglars entered the home through a back window, removed the TV and tried to load it into their Lexus. When it proved too big, they left it on the curb and drove away.

The Sacramento Bee reports that a neighbour witnessed the crime and called the police, who traced the car to a 19-year-old man. The suspect was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property.

Police are still looking for two suspected accomplices.
