Police: Man tried to sell fake TV

SAN LEANDRO, Calif., Aug. 12 (UPI) -- A California man tried to fool someone into buying an oven door the man said was a flat-screen TV, police said.

San Leandro police said the man was pulled over last week and officers noticed a box for a brand-new, 37-inch Sony TV in his car. But all they found inside the box was a glass oven door disguised as a television, the Oakland (Calif.) Tribune reported.

Police said they pulled the man over because of an anonymous call from someone who said a man tried to sell him a TV for $100 out of his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot and gave police a description of the man's beige 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass.

Anthony Myles, 52, was arrested on a charge of driving on a suspended license. Police said no other charges were filed.
