Cops: Thieves Had ‘Lounging’ on Their Minds

A couple is accused of stealing a chair from inside Westfield Citrus Park mall.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a little help from Westchase area residents to a couple they say stole an $1,800 lounge chair from Westfield Citrus Park.

The incident unfolded last night, Jan. 7, after the 8021 Citrus Park Town Center Drive mall had closed down for the evening. The couple, deputies say, remained inside after the doors were locked.

Around 9:55 p.m., the two suspects grabbed a chair from the concourse area and carried it through the emergency exit and into the parking lot.

The female suspect is described as being between 17 and 20 years of age. She is about 5 feet, 4 inches to 5 feet, 6 inches in height and has long dark hair and weighs approximately 130 pounds. She was last seen wearing a letterman’s jacket and dark pants.

The male suspect is between the age of 26 and 28. He is about 6 feet, 1 inch to 6 feet, 2 inches in height and weighs an estimated 170 pounds. The man has a brown crew cut and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and park pants.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 813-247-8200.
