TAMPA — The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has released surveillance video images of the man wearing Gasparilla beads who broke into the courthouse on Saturday.

The photos show a shirtless man wearing beads around his neck walking through the Courthouse Annex at 801 E Twiggs St. after smashing in the glass door, deputies said.

But he wandered into the Edgecomb Courthouse next door, where security escorted him out of the building and called for medical assistance. Before authorities arrived, the man disappeared and couldn't be found.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously and toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
