Three Arrested for Grand Theft


The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office arrested three men connected to a robbery at a T-Mobile store located at 8712 Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa.

On December 5, 2020, at 7:35 p.m., five suspects entered the T-Mobile and began grabbing display cell phones and iPads from the shelves.

A deputy in the area observed the suspects fleeing the store in a vehicle and followed them while aviation arrived at the scene and began tracking the vehicle.

A vehicle stop was conducted at Bird Street and three suspects were arrested without incident.

Jordan Richardson, Jefferson Valmyre and Marc Ceant are charged with Grand Theft and Criminal Mischief.

Two other suspects exited the vehicle in West Tampa, and have yet to been located at this time.

“Thanks to the quick action of our deputies and aviation pilots these three men were arrested shortly after the crime was committed,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “The investigation continues as detectives search for the other two suspects. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200.”

The store clerk captured part of the robbery on a cell phone and it is included below along with video of aviation tracking the suspects.
