Armed men tie up woman in her Seminole home, then steal her Mercedes

SEMINOLE — Pinellas sheriff's deputies are looking for a pair of armed robbers who tied up a woman in her home Tuesday morning before stealing her Mercedes Benz.

It happened at 10:42 a.m. in the 10300 block of 114th Terrace North, deputies said. The robbers, who the woman does not know, entered the home and bound her by her wrists and ankles, sheriff's officials said.

The robbers ransacked the home, then left in the woman's 2008 Mercedes Benz C300, which is white with tinted windows and has 19-inch chrome rims. The car's Florida tag is 674VVM, deputies said.

The other robber was described as a black man with short hair and gold upper teeth. He is in his late 30s or early 40s, stands about 6 foot 2 to 6 foot 4 and weighs about 180 pounds, deputies said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Robbery/Homicide Detective Carl Vitro at (727) 582-6200. To remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at (800) 873-TIPS.
