Franklin County deputies say one person is behind bars after three suspects allegedly stole a television while a woman was watching it.

According to Sheriff Zach Scott, three people broke into a home on Obetz Road in South Columbus on March 28.

While one resident was asleep in her room, her 90-year-old aunt was watching television around 10:50 a.m.

The three suspects took the TV and $500 in cash. The 90-year-old was confused and not sure what was happening. She did tell deputies that one person had a gun.

The suspects fled when the sleeping resident awoke and screamed.

On Thursday, deputies arrested and charged Shawn McCoy with the crime. Court documents indicate McCoy tried to sell the 50-inch set.

Deputies say the search for the other two suspects continues.
