Bad idea... All around. Not sure what the point of putting yourself in a position where you either a)shoot someone stealing a TV b) get shot by someone stealing TV or c) get shot by cop coming to alarm. Even if you catch a guy in there then what? You now detain him at gun point to wait for the cops? So the cops show up with some dude (not homeowner) holding a gun to someone proned out?
Clearly if the cop arrived as he was exiting the building they weren't far off. So what was gained by "clearing " the house? Cops were coming either way because of the alarm.
And legally i doubt you'd be good if you did shoot someone that was a "threat". Seeing as he/ your clearly going above and beyond putting yourself in danger over a friends TV.
