Deputies seek help in identifying Brandon jewelry thief

BRANDON — Deputies are asking the public's help in identifying a man who made off with $5,400 in stolen jewelry July 1.

Deputies described the suspect as black, 18 to 21 years old, about 6 feet, 180 pounds with visible gold teeth, pierced ears and black, braided hair. He has a tattoo of a cross on his right forearm.

Here's what happened, according to deputies:

About 2:10 p.m., the man entered Gordon's Jewelers in the Westfield Shopping Town Center.

He tried on a 20-inch gold chain but said he wanted something longer. A clerk added an 8-inch bracelet.

When he put it back on, the man ran out of the store and hopped in a faded red Pontiac Grand Am or Grand Prix.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to call (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.

Watch a surveillance video of the theft on the Sheriff's Office YouTube page.
