GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. – The man took off his shirt and posed in front of a mirror at a Gwinnett County apartment complex gym.

He “is seen on camera appearing to utilize the gym to work out,” police Cpl. Michele Pihera said.

But authorities said the gym’s flat-screen TV, not weightlifting, was on the man’s mind.

About 1 a.m. Friday — 90 minutes after that pose in front of the mirror — cameras captured the man and an accomplice removing the television from the wall, police said.

This time, the man was wearing a gray sweatshirt.

“After stealing the television,” Pihera said, “both suspects are seen leaving the property.”

No other details were released.
