Deputies want the public’s help in identifying these people in connection with an auto burglary.

TAMPA — Deputies want the public's help in tracking down two people they say broke into a woman's car March 26 and stole her purse and credit cards.

The burglary happened about 6 p.m. in the Lettuce Lake Park parking lot, 6920 E Fletcher Ave. Tamara Waring, 46, of Temple Terrace, parked her 2008 Cadillac there.

The thieves smashed a window, took her purse and ran away.

Between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. that night, two people were seen on a surveillance camera making purchases with Waring's credit card at Walmart, 7011 Waters Ave. W.

One thief is a white woman with long black hair, about 25 to 30 with a medium build, wearing a pink shirt, jeans and flip-flops.

The other is a tall, thin black man, about 25 to 30, who was wearing a striped green shirt, a Florida Marlins baseball hat and sunglasses.

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