The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is working to identify two suspects who attempted to burglarize a gas station on Wednesday by using bricks to break in.
At 3:05 a.m. on March 3, 2021, two suspects were seen on store surveillance cameras trying to enter the closed Shell gas station located at 5524 Van Dyke Road in Lutz
. One of the suspects threw bricks at the glass front door. They were unsuccessful in gaining entry into the store.
One of the suspects is described as a black adult male, approximately 5’10”-6’0” and 190-210 lbs. He was last seen wearing a yellow knit beanie, black mask, dark blue long sleeve shirt, dark pants, and Nike athletic shoes with a yellow swoosh. The other suspect is described as a black adult male, approximately 5’8”-5’11” and 175-200 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black knit beanie, black t-shirt, dark shorts, and dark athletic shoes. He may have a tattoo on his left upper forearm.
“While these suspects failed at their attempted burglary, they caused damaged to this business in the process, and we want to hold them accountable,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Anyone who recognizes these men is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200.”
