Lt. Matt Pecka with the Henrico Police Department confirmed to the news outlet that a person "wearing a mask resembling a television" left the unwanted, outdated TVs on a "majority of homes throughout the community". Then he stealthily walks away.

'He wants to be known as the TV Santa Claus.

Residents in the Henrico County Hampshire neighborhood woke up to more than 60 old TVs at various homes Sunday morning.

Old CRT TVs mysteriously turning up on the front steps of a bunch of houses one morning in one neighbourhood in a town in the U.S. state of Virginia? "I don't know", said Henrico County resident Jim Brooksbank. "They had way too much time on their hands if they had all these TVs and spread them all over the neighborhood".

The Henrico County Police Division are aware of the odd situation, but it's not totally unexpected.

In August of 2018 - nearly exactly one year ago - residents in another community woke up to old TVs on their front porches.

However, if they were engaged in hand-to-hand combat in the jungles of the Philippines, then Booth would come out on top. Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee, fired the first shot, though she was slightly understanding of Tarantino's artistic choice.

Authorities have gathered security footage from multiple neighbors, but think it's a harmless prank not specifically targeting anyone.

While Brooksbank said he found some comedy in the seemingly random delivery, he also found it a little pointless.

The TVs appeared on Sunday morning, with residents telling WTVR 6 they believed it was a prank, tentatively describing it as "sort of funny" and "funny in some ways".

'It's summer, and people are getting ready to go back to school.

Homeowners and local police chalked up the mysterious "TV Santa Claus" to a bored prankster, who managed to pull off his unusual delivery to more than 50 homes, according to the local CBS station WTVR-TV. Although, it is unclear if a crime has actually been committed.
