Good morning, I'm David Greene.

Well, it could have been burgeoning romance at a restaurant in San Mateo, Calif. A customer left his name and phone number with the bartender, trying to steal her heart. He came back a bit later - this time at the restaurant's back door, trying to steal a television and other electronics.

Employees spotted him, including the woman he had flirted with, and so a date was setup at a doughnut shop by the police, who promptly arrested the man.
