Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man and woman they say stole more than $1,300 worth of merchandise from the Brandon Town Center Mall.
Deputies said a man and woman walked into a LensCrafters store about 3:15 p.m. March 23 and began looking at glasses. Staff members thought they were acting suspiciously, and when they asked the pair if they needed help, they ran out of the store and into the mall.
Staff members afterward found that four pairs of Ray-Ban sunglasses and four pairs of Ray-Ban glasses were missing. The merchandise was valued at $1,372, deputies said.
Deputies say the man they are looking for is described as between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, about 200 pounds, with curly black hair. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, dark shorts, white ankle socks and black sneakers.
The woman he was with is described as between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall, between 160 and 180 pounds, with curly black hair streaked with pink. She was last seen wearing a dark pink sweatshirt, purple shirt, pink pants and sandals.
