Deputies seek two men in Tampa gas station robbery

TAMPA — Deputies are searching for two men they say broke into a Chevron gas station and stole a drawer full of cash early Friday.

The two men, who have not yet been identified, shattered the glass front door of the gas station at 7702 E Hillsborough Ave. just after 2:30 a.m., deputies said, grabbed the money drawer from the cash register and ran.

The two men are black and similarly built: 5 feet 8 to 6 feet tall, with a medium build.

Both were wearing white shirts over their faces and black sweatshirts at the time of the robbery, one with a white design on its back, deputies said. The man wearing that sweatshirt also had on dark jeans, black gloves and black shoes, deputies said.

The other man wore blue sweat pants, black gloves, white and red shoes and had a red, white, black and grey backpack on at the time, deputies said.

Images of the men were recovered from surveillance cameras.

Anyone with information on the suspects has been asked to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200 or call the Tip Line toll-free at 1-800-873-8477.
