Police have arrested a man accused of stealing five big-screen televisions from a suburban Philadelphia store in a week.

The Delaware County Times reports police arrested 33-year-old Matthew Colleluori in Prospect Park on Tuesday afternoon. That's after police say he stole his fifth TV in as many days from a Wal-Mart at the Marple Crossroads Center.

Police Chief Tom Murray says Colleluori began the spree on Jan. 17, when he walked into the Wal-Mart, loaded a big-screen television into a cart and ran out of the store. Police say he did it again two days later and again Monday.

Murray says Colleluori returned Tuesday, took another TV and fled after assaulting security. He was arrested after a car chase.

A telephone listing in his name was not in service.
