Details: A Mazomanie father and son had parked the family's pickup in front of West Towne's Best Buy store Saturday evening as they loaded a 60" TV into the truck's bed. The son was standing on the passenger side, while his dad strapped down their new television set. Suddenly a brazen would-be thief got into the driver's seat and started the truck.

The son charged around, yelling: “What are you doing! He grabbed the stranger and yanked him out of the cab. His dad jumped off the back and chased the crook. He ended up getting away. A witness said the criminal got out of a 70's to 80's beige sedan with a loud muffler. The citizen described it as a "crappy" car with "really crazy fancy rims." A couple of other men were seen inside the get-away vehicle.
