Pa. man nabbed in toilet theft scheme.

Police say a western Pennsylvania man’s toilet theft scam didn’t end with a clean getaway.

Thirty-two-year-old Bobby Clifford Smith III faces theft and related charges for allegedly exchanging a toilet he didn’t buy for gift cards at a Somerset County home improvement store.

State police say Smith, of Windber, entered the store on Aug. 28, grabbed a toilet from a shelf and immediately went to the return line to exchange it for more than $600 in gift cards.

Investigators say surveillance footage from the store captured the entire episode.

The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat reports Smith was arraigned Tuesday and held on $30,000 bail. Court records don’t list an attorney for him.
