WINDBER, Pa. (AP) -- 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 ( HTTP://BIT.LY/TLB18O ) reports Smith was arraigned Tuesday and held on $30,000 bail. Court records don't list an attorney for him.

A Martin County sheriff's deputy in Florida arrested Ramon Blair, 28, based on tips from informants that Blair would have hundreds of dollars of crack cocaine "on his person." An initial search turned no results, but a more thorough search while in custody revealed that Blair had hidden the crack in, well, his crack. Blair was told to undress, squat, and cough -- and police found what appeared to be a white piece of paper in his buttocks, which contained crack cocaine.
