SOMERSET, Pa., Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Pennsylvania State Police said they arrested a man caught on camera stealing a toilet from a store and immediately returning the item for store credit.

Investigators said Bobby Clifford Smith III, 32, was caught on camera Aug. 28 taking the toilet from a Lowes home improvement store in Somerset and going directly to the customer service line, where he exchanged the toilet for $667.34 in store credit without presenting a receipt, the Johnstown (Pa.) Tribune-Democrat reported Thursday.

Smith was arraigned Tuesday on a retail theft charge and held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
