Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies are on
the hunt for a man they say likes to swipe electronics from area Target stores.
The man in question is described as a Hispanic between 25 and 30 years of age. He weight around 200 pounds and stands between 5 feet, 9 inches and 5 feet, 11 inches in height. He was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt, black shorts, black tennis shoes and a lime green bracelet.
The search for this man began after an Aug. 6 incident at the 11627 W. Hillsborough Ave. Target store. Sometime between 8 and 10:56 a.m., deputies say the man entered the store and took a set of Beats By Dre headphones and a cell phone charger before walking out without paying.
The same man is said to have paid a visit to the 6295 W. Waters Ave. Target around 5:05 p.m. on Aug. 6. He’s accused of swiping a Jawbone Big Jambox speaker from that store.
Deputies say the same man went back to the Hillsborough Avenue Target on Aug. 9 and Aug. 12 and swiped more electronics both times.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 813-247-8200. Tips can also be submitted through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-873-TIPS or online at www.crimestopperstb.com.
