Crime Stoppers seeks two suspects in September car burglary

TAMPA — Two suspects in a Sept. 18 car burglary are still on the loose, and Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is now offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to their arrests.

Police say a man and a woman broke into a car at 7220 E Hillsborough Ave. and stole the owner's purse. Shortly after, they used the victim's credit cards at the nearby Citgo Gas Station, at Hillsborough Avenue and 45th Street.

The first suspect is described as a white male in his 40s, about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, 240 to 260 pounds, with a moustache and dark brown hair that's balding in the back, a pot belly, and a gait that looks like he has a bad back, police said.

The second suspect is a white female, 35 to 40 years old, 5-5 to 5-8, 170 to 190 pounds with blonde hair.

Crime Stoppers asks that anyone with information call 1-800-873-TIPS(8477), report anonymously online at or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
