Public's Assistance Needed in Solving String of Commercial Burglaries
Tampa Police officers are asking for the public's assistance in identifying two male suspects who were involved in multiple break-ins at local businesses. The unidentified suspects broke in to the Sprint Store (5004 East Fowler Avenue) on February 14 shortly before 2:30 a.m. They used a long metal pry tool to force the front door open and stole a bluetooth speaker from the front display case. The two male suspects committed a previous break-in at The Cut Barbershop (902 West Busch Boulevard) on January 4 at approximately 2:30 a.m. In that burglary, the suspects used a brick paver to smash the front door open. They stole an ATM machine, which was later recovered in an abandoned location on January 16.
The two unidenified suspects were caught on camera leaving the scene of both burglaries in what detectives believe is a 2014-2015 white Volkswagen Passat Sport. Anyone with information is asked contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
