Deputies searching for robbers who fled Citrus Park mall in Smart car

CITRUS PARK — Detectives were searching Thursday for two men who stole thousands of dollars worth of clothing from the Westfield Citrus Park mall and fled in a Smart car, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The men walked into the Macy's department store at 7801 Citrus Park Town Center about 7 p.m. March 19 and approached the men's section.

They grabbed three stacks of Sean John merchandise, worth $2,346, and left the store without paying, deputies said. The men drove off in a black Smart car.

Deputies described the men as being black, between 22 to 29 years old. One, who was last seen wearing a red polo shirt and jeans, is 6-feet-tall, has a large build and shoulder-length dread locks, deputies said. The other, who wore jeans and a T-shirt imprinted with a scorpion, is about 5-feet-8-inches tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at (813)247-8200, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at (800)873-8477.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
