LUTZ — Hillsborough deputies are searching for two men they say tried to burglarize a Lutz home Tuesday morning.
The Sheriff's Office says the men repeatedly rang a doorbell for several minutes before driving off. About 10 minutes later, they returned and kicked in the door of the house on the 18000 block of Bittern Avenue.
The home's resident, Lori Sly, 44, screamed and ran to another room, where she called law enforcement. The men fled without taking anything.
A home surveillance video captured images of the two men. The Sheriff's Office says one is a black, 22 to 29 years old, about 5 feet 11, with short black hair. He was wearing green pants, a green T-shirt and black shoes.
The second man is black, thin, 18 to 21 years old and about 5 feet 3. He was wearing a gold or yellow T-shirt.
They were driving a purple Chevrolet Impala with dark tinted windows and a small rear spoiler. The Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to call (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.
