CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating a major theft that happened during the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

LG Electronics says 72 televisions were stolen during the event at Time Warner Cable Arena.

The company first noticed the sets had disappeared last year, but at the time, they were only considered missing, not necessarily stolen.

It took quite a while to sort through all the serial numbers and make sure those sets that were returned were reconciled against the missing ones, Vice President of Corporate Communications for LG Electronics said.

The televisions range from in cost from $350 to $1,800.
